Oliver had his g-tube placed on Friday morning, along with repairing his umbilical hernia. The same surgeon who did Waverly's was able to do Oliver's. She did a wonderful job and he was up and walking the following day. This time around the g-tube was no longer a scary and overwhelming ordeal. We have three years of experience with them under our belts. We were even able to teach the nurses a thing or two about them.
Oliver did great. He didn't complain or thrash around. He slept well and allowed all of the medical staff to check him out repeatedly. We were even able to see our Palliative Care doctor and geneticist. He was a super patient. We are so proud of him.
