Okay, so things are not as dire as my title probably makes them sound. But my 9 week old hypotonic infant who lives in the NICU needs to be able to eat before she goes home. I'm hoping for some insider information into the lives of mommies with G-tube babies.
(P.S. For those of you who don't live in the land of medical jargon, hypotonia is poor muscle tone and is actually more serious than it sounds. In Lily's case, it means she can't swallow, which leads us to the need for a G-tube.)
