Nurses! I need a medical condition (vague such as swallowing problems should be fine) to explain why an otherwise mostly healthy two-week-old would need a G-tube. I might settle for NG but I'd really prefer for it to be gastric.
Money is also an issue for the parents-- would a g-tube be less expensive than a corrective surgery? Would a g-tube be used in a child that they suspected would outgrow the problems in a year or two with proper nourishing?
