The Gastro Surgeon was just in to review Mom's PEG tube. He feels that the tube should be left alone for a couple more days. They will contain to drain her stomach, allowing the tube site to dry out and heal. His thought is that the hole will shrink to a point that they can resume it's use - hopefully by Monday. If this works, there will be no surgical intervention.
Dr. Ryan also called in to check on her. Remember - he is on vacation and out of town - still staying in touch with her on a daily basis! He agrees with the surgeon on giving the PEG tube "a rest", but would like for her to receive nutritional supplementation by IV (TPN).
Keep your fingers crossed!!
