The day finally arrived!!!  Andy got his PEG tube removed today after having it for 19 months. Wow, it only took about 1 second to pull it out. AMAZING and he didn't feel anything. The doctor said that the hole will close on it owns pretty quick.

The end of the tube is like a mushroom and it just collapsed and pulled right out. I was telling the doctor Wow that was easy and quick. I said if one of our young grandchildren ages 20 months & 3 would have pulled on it then it could of came out. He said Yes, it has happened. So if you have small children or grandchildren don't let them yank or pull on it.

God Bless you all
