I call today a success!
Remember December 12, 2018, when the G-tube doctor told me I needed to gain ten pounds in three months?
I have gained ten pounds!
I told the doctor that I don’t think the medication need me feel more of an appetite, so I’m going to stop taking the Periactin (Cyproheptadine).
My mom is still a little nervous (and I am too! March 26, 2019) about pulling it out so we’ll wait until June. During June we’ll pull out the G-tube for good!
Since I have had the G-tube for almost my entire life, it’s most likely the hole won’t close up on its own. We might need stitches to close up the hole for good.
Also, when we pull the G-tube out, the hole will be leaking for a few days. I will be dripping everywhere, so I predict a big problem.
Oh well, we’ll cross that bridge when we get there.
