They are tube feeding Brody now

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I talked to my daughter a few minutes ago and she told me they are now tube feeding Brody. They started this last night.

He appears to be doing good with this she said. He didn't lose any weight last night, so maybe with this tube feeding he will start to gain his weight, and then Desiree can start to nurse again.

Desiree said this is common though, the nurses told her that Brody is just having to work to hard to try and nurse. So I reckon this is the best thing for him. Just something else for me to worry about. I know he is getting the best care possible, and I know that the doctors know what they are doing. But that doesn't help me not to worry. I am just a worrier.

Thanks, I know he will be ok too. I just can't help worrying. I have always just been a worrier. No one else ever hasta worry about nothing, cause I worry enough for everybody.

It's perfectly understandable that you're worried, but I'm sure he'll be home in no time at all.

I used to just wear myself out with worry, and then a good friend suggested this:

Turn every "worry" thought into a mental image of everything turning out just fine, and concentrate on that image for a moment.

This turns your energies from negative to positive... from thinking of the bad things that could happen to imagining the good things that can happen. It's easier on you emotionally, and I think it can actually affect the outcome in a positive way -- just like prayer.

So I'm imagining little Brody strong and healthy!
