Well, it’s finally here. Penelope will get her G tube today. It is 4:23am as I’m writing this. I had set my alarm for 4:30am but of course I didn’t need it. What little restless sleep I did get was interrupted by the thunderstorm that is currently happening here, so I was wide awake at 4am anyway. I’ve given her the last dose of medication and soon I will start her last feed. And then, in a few hours, we will head to the hospital. I am a bundle of nerves right now- I just want this over with.
I will post with an update on how it went when I can- I’m not sure when that will be. In the meantime, here is one last picture of Penelope with the NG tube for your viewing pleasure:
