Charlotte's Journey Home

Just a Regular Kid, Sort Of

The Tube Slithers Out

Leave a comment

Little Charlotte’s cheeks are so ravaged by the tape we use for the NG tube. Today, she was wiggling and writhing while we pumped a feed. She basically rubbed her cheek against a cloth and the tube slithered right through the tape and out of her nose.

We just can’t bear to put the tube back in. We don’t want to make her scream and we don’t want to hurt her little cheeks any more. And she’s eating so nicely since the thing came out. We’re going to give her a night off and decide what to do tomorrow.
