C, our 6-year-old son, had a feeding tube (g-tube) placed in August 2013 at the age of 2. He had essentially stopped eating and was only consuming gummy bears and graham crackers. After becoming lethargic, he was admitted to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin to receive an NG tube. His g-tube was surgically placed two weeks after that. After months of researching, advocating, and testing, he was diagnosed with delayed gastric emptying in October 2013. You’ll find all my posts about our g-tube life below.
