This is only my second time posting a message on this site but I visit it regularly. I'm not yet a nursing student (hoping to be excepted next Sept) so I've never really had anything to post, but today I got some bad news and would like some input. My fiancee is in the hospital for pneumonia and was told today that he will need a tube feeding put it because the flap that covers your airway when you eat is not doing its job. This is devastating news because he also has NF2 which has rendered both of his arms and legs to be fairly useless.
I was just wondering if you guys had any info about tube feeding you'd be willing to share and any thoughts or sugestions. Any help given would be greatly appreciated. You guys are a great bunch of people!
