The surgery itself will only take about 20-25 minutes, which is nice because I am sure I will be a nervous wreck the whole time. She will also have to stay the night...maybe 2. They need to make sure she is tolerating the feeds because a G tube can make reflux worse, etc. They will also have to train Adam and I how to use it, and change the button out eventually. Once healed it will need to be changed every 4-6 months. I am looking at ordering some "button buddies" to decrease the granulation tissue and leakage; and those should help.
A nice end to the appointment was that usually Macy goes to Devos in Grand Rapids for everything, but this Specialist is out of Bronson Hospital in Kzoo; which is where my husband (Adam) works. It was nice to be able to meet him for lunch today after our appt. so Macy could spend some mid-day time with her Daddy!
Macy has a feeding therapy appt. on Sat. and next Wed. I actually think that is her only appt. next week so that is good. I love it when we get a week off of appointments or only have 1; then 4th of July and fun times camping with the family! Can't wait!
