Mommy’s Heart-stopping Moment of the Week

Changing a G tube button is not the hardest thing in the world. But comprehending how a child can pull out said button without bursting the bubble at the end is a lot harder.

Wendy is famous for ripping out feeding tubes. She pulled out NG tubes in the hospital and ever since she's been home, she has been pulling out G tube buttons regularly. But how she got this one out, without popping the balloon at the end, is beyond me. When I saw it, my heart sank because I just knew she had pulled so hard that it had detached her stomach lining from abdomen wall or even ripped the hole in her belly open. Fortunately, that wasn't the case. It was as simple as her pulling her button out and mommy replacing it like normal.

I knew these past few days had been too uneventful! I guess Wendy decided without me that we needed a little excitement this morning. 


  1. I'm so glad Wendy is just fine---she's just clever! :) And I love your nail ;)

    1. Thank you! I use Sally Hansen Salon Effects. They are so easy to use and I don't have to wait for the polish to dry, because who has time for that?
