so for the past week lexi's g tube has been infected or at least the site around the g tube has been. when we went to the GI dr last week he told me to put a&d ointment and triple antibiotic cream on it. over the weekend it has steadily gotten worse. well i was finally able to get her into the GI dr today and he took one look at her g tube and say its really infected now even with the ointments so he put her on an antibiotic for a week. he also said since we are having issues with this tube then we should switch her to a mic-key button so next week when we go back to make sure its finally healing we will be setting up the appointment to get it switched. i think it will be easier when we get the mic-key button or at least i hope so.
