DD just turned 4 and is 35 inches and 24 pounds. She grew 4 inches in height this past year but she only gained 2 pounds. She is healthy, smart (has met or exceeded all her milestones), and not emaciated or malnourished in ANY way according to her Pedi. However, her Pedi said if she does not gain a pound by August 1, she has to get a feeding G-Tube) in her tummy. She said we need to "fatten" her up and we can put pediasure in her G-tube all night.
Oh hell no! If there is no medical reason beyond her being a bit underweight, why should I subject her to surgery and a thbe that could be in for years (according to the Pedi)? I am so pissed. CAN THEY MAKE ME PUT A TUBE IN HER? She is on medicaid and all that and I fear the doctor telling them or CPS I am denying her medical care or something!!!!! I am afraid I will be made to have the tube in.
