Back In hospital

27 Feb

Well, we are back at the Children’s unfortunately. Tilda’s PEG site started to look a bit wrong and cause her some pain and discomfort when administering meds. I took her to the GP on Friday who thought it may be infected again so we went back on the antibiotics. Then on Sunday at lunchtime, in the middle of our gardening working bee – thank you so much to those there! – I noticed that there was a lump just above where the PEG goes in. Mum and I took her straight to emergency where we were admitted pretty quickly.

The consensus is that the PEG has moved so needs to be repositioned. We are currently waiting to hear when the surgery will be, hopefully tonight but we will most likely be in hospital until the end of the week.

Let this be the end of the PEG dramas please.

Tilda is otherwise well and cheery and once again. Dora is saving the day.

    I am so sorry the PEG continues to be problematic.
    I am hoping the repositioning does the trick.
    You must be worn out.

    Let’s hope and pray that darling Tilda has a beautiful new PEG tube -that is just perfect.

    Hang in there guys.
    We are all sending you strength to keep on.

    Much love Cally xx

    What a nuisance and thank goodness you noticed it so quickly! I am so glad that Dora is proving such a panacea! Thinking of all of you, both because of Tilda of course, but also gardening in that heat. I hope she’s home soon. All my love.
