Danny's GI has decided to do a g-tube. He will have only water and ice chips by mouth for 6 weeks and elecare through his tube to give his insides a chance to clear everything out and heal up so we can start from scratch to trial foods one at a time. His GI system is still totally out of whack and he has only gained 2 oz in the last 6 months. That 2 oz basically means he hadn't gone to the bathroom yet and doesn't really count toward weight gain. :/ We have a surgical consult next week and will hopefully get a date for placement at that appointment.

I'm sorry he has to get a g-tube but hopefully this gets you one step closer to getting him gaining weight.

Sorry about the g-tube, but it sounds like a good plan. I hope it goes well

Thanks ladies. The surgeon decided yesterday that we will have it placed the week of the 7th of May but he has to find out when the PEG button will be in before we can schedule a specific day. (They are ordering the PEG button so he won't have to have a peg tube.)

I'm glad to hear this. It sounds like you finally have a good plan. I'll be praying for a successful surgery and that the whole treatment process goes well. Let us know when you have a set date.
