Nose tube out, again

I thought I will blog about this fabulous event before it ends. Yesterday, Meera managed to pull Shivam's NG tube out. It was lat evening and after discussing with the Dr., we decided to leave the tube out for the night. Shivam ate a decent amount of food and loved his new found freedom.

Early today, we reached the HemOnc clinic and had a long discussion with Kathy, Shivam's dietician. We decided that as long as his weight remains above 12.7 kg, it's ok to be with out the nose tube.

Shivam is loving his life without the tube and is make quite an effort to eat food (with, of course, a little prodding from all of us).
