What's Going On? My son Heath used to be 100% dependent on a feeding tube. I kept this blog until he was three, documenting our journey from a perilous birth, through the NICU, tube feeding and weaning, and beyond! I gradually felt less need to post as we adjusted to parenting our wonderful, normal, awe-inspiring child with a disability. It seemed like a good idea to keep the blog alive as it contains copious, obsessive (!) details about our tube weaning experience under TUBE RESOURCES below. If your child is tube-dependent, I hope you find support, information, resources, and evidence to share with your child's medical team, if you believe they are ready to eat. Good luck!!
