Jessica, Mommy to Jedd, severe reflux, severe food and oral aversions, Finally G tube free!!! VSD repair 4-24-07 (open heart surgery), hypospadias, repaired 3 times and Ear tubes Visit Jedd at his CB site: www.caringbridge.org/visit/jedd
G tubes are for kids who are not meeting their caloric needs orally and GJ tubes are for kids who cannot tolerate anything in their stomachs because of severe DGE or paralysis of the muscles in the stomach or kids who have aspiration risks.
Check with your
doctor first!
