Gastro update

Was a really good meeting with the gastrostomy nurse!! Got a lot of information out of it, although it did raise some questions too!!

Think Craig was totally overwhelmed by it all trying his hardest to take it all in - and think of it in positive terms!!

It does look likely that, if/when we go ahead with this, Ryan will definitely need the fundoplication done at the same time. Thats the bit i'm totally dreading not so keen on. Guess thats why we still need to discuss this a lot more, especially with the gastro doc.

All in all though, a very worthwhile discussion - even if it did involve seeing a gastrostomy on a doll that wouldn't been out of place in Chuckie!!! SCARY!!!!
