Thank you for praying for Mama and her procedure today. We had to laugh at how surprisingly easy it was to take the feeding tube out. For those not familiar, she had a tube that led from her stomach to the outside of her abdomen. You could open and close the tube to add liquid nutrition through a syringe.
To have the tube put in was not so fun. To get it out was a breeze! I was in the room when they did this and they said that some people remove their own, which sounds insane to me. Anyway, the doctor just clipped the tube and pulled. They put some packing on the outside and taped her up. The holes in her stomache and also on the outside of her abdomen will heal and close on their own. Creep, ugh? LOL
So, once again, thank you for your prayers. Tomorrow we go to have a scan done of a lump on her arm. We suspect it is what is commonly called a fatty patty but with cancer still in rear view, it is wise to have it scanned. A fatty patty on my Mom is hilarious as she currently weighs 112 pounds. :D
