The above is a super adorable picture of my clone babies! 🙂
On June 7th we arrived in Ottawa at CHEO in time for Oliver’s appointment with General Surgery. We waited an hour before we were called in; they were running behind. The g-tube nurse was training another nurse so the trainee did the tube change. She removed Oliver’s temporary PEG tube and inserted the measuring tube. Oliver was not impressed with this at all; he got very upset and I felt bad, but the tube switch needed to be done now that the stoma was healed. I did my best to comfort him and rocked him to sleep while Jordan went down to the pharmacy to purchase a new Mic-Key button (12 French, 2 cm). Over $200 later, the button was inserted and we were finished for the day! The nurse showed us how to do the insertion so that in 6 months’ time we can do it ourselves. I’m actually nervous about that, as we never did a tube change with Khloë.
We stayed overnight at Rogers House, the palliative care facility. The following day, after packing up, we drove over to Ottawa’s Aviation & Space Museum and spent a couple hours wandering around there.
The museum was a nice way to end our trip to Ottawa!
