Hi Everyone...
just a quick note to tell you, that after 60 days since NG tube was placed... Nate weighed in at 99.4 pounds yesterday! Doctors very happy with nearly 10 pounds in weight gain.
This did not come easy... Nate still taking in only small amount of food through mouth and he is connected to feeding IV 10-12 hours a night.
