    Peg

    Just taught my son how to how to administer medication and feed via PEG to my husband. Feeling very proud of him.

      Welcome to the Forum, Lynda.

      I don't know how old your son is but it's great he is involved in your husband's care - it makes the PEG a lot less scary once people get to know it.

      Love Ellie.

        My daughters are a bit squeamish when I mention or try to show them how to do it but my 8 yr old grandson said I could show him, he wasn’t phased at all 😊 x

          Aw Jeanette, that is wonderful. Good on your grandson. Our son is 17 Ellie but his twin sister wasn’t up for it! They are all different. X

            Ah, that's great, Lynda.

            My own 2 kids have been giving me meds & food through my tube since they were knee high to a grasshopper so, at 19 & 17, they are pros!
            They grew up with it though, so that's probably easier than being introduced to a PEG tube at 17 - your son is right to be proud of himself.

            Love Ellie.
