It's finally done!! We were up and at the hospital bright and early this morning! Vinny went in and came out with in an hour. My good friend Cami was able to go back with Vinny to make sure everything went well (she is a nurse anesthesiologist). We are so thankful to finally get this darned G tube in his belly.
Had to get one last shot of the smooth tube free belly!
Vinny was quite pissed when he woke up!
I have to admit I am kind of freaked out by this big dangling tube from his belly... Will we even be able to put clothes on him? The doc said he will have this long tube for three months and then they will put a "Mic Key" button in? I am glad this is done and I know we will be happy to have the tube out of his nose and the G tube will be easier to use (that's what everyone says anyway). We will be at the Med Center for three days and will be able to go home on Monday.
Sorry for the yucky pics- took them with my cell phone. Got to run and get back to the hospital so Jim can sleep before he goes to work. Can't wait for Vinny to fully wake up and open his eyes so I can love all over him!
Notice how cute he looks with out the tube in his nose :)
