Gary came home around 6:30pm.He's still shaking off the groggy feeling. The feeding tube is in without incident.The gastroenterologist (sp??) gave us the ok to start tomorrow. So, the very, very patient nurses gave me instructions.I had a practice run flushing it with 120 cc h2o a half and hour ago. This is a temporary safety net for his caloric intake. the stronger Gary is, the better to fight as the chemo and radiation are very taxing.
