Tube Feeding Attitudes
Today's topic: How has your attitude/family/friends' attitudes changed towards tube feeding? What has awareness of the positive benefits done to change perceptions? I'm not sure that many of our friends or family have changed their minds. A few see it as a necessary evil, a few think it's too scary to think about, and a few just hope that ignoring it will make it go away. It's kind of hard to argue with results though, and Acorn is proof that tube feeding can work wonders - he was below 3% for size when he was born, and he's now around 40% for actual age, and above 50% for adjusted age.
