5 Months Home, Surgery This Month

Christy is doing so well on her NG-Tube!  She has gained over 5 pounds in the last month or so!  After reviewing everything and having a second swallow study (one at Children's hospital this time), it was agreed that Christy has to have her tonsils and adenoids removed and her G-Tube placed during the same sedation.  They were able to schedule this for Nov. 13.

Christy has been home for over 5 months now, and I tried to get a before and after, and here's what I got!

Christy is getting stronger and is able to do more and more with her right side, the side effected by her cerebral palsy.  Her therapists are in awe of how much stronger she has become in such a short time!
Christy met her Grandmother!

The feeding tube and pump in a backpack don't slow her down!
