We all want to be accepted for who we are in this life. Right?
As a special needs mom, I want this for my son. ACCEPTANCE. I have never seen him so excited than this very day (other than at church) Ha Ha! Some of Brent’s classmates, his teacher and coach, all came over to our home, as well as the local newspaper, and presented him with a team jersey. Go Lions!
We are definitely battling with the feeding tube on a daily basis. But, what’s new? I was sitting here pondering on how long it has been that I learned how to work with feeding tubes and I have to say that I am a genius! haha. It has been 18 years. What is up with that? I should have a medical degree of some sort by now. Don’t you agree?
It has been an “OK” day. Brently had surgery 2 weeks ago this past Monday. He had to have a G-tube – (feeding tube) revision because of infection that spread throughout his abdomen due to some complications in changing out the tube. He is home bound for 5 more weeks due to more infection and I can’t risk him getting any worse.
