Day 45 - UNM Hospital, Surgery Tomorrow

The decision has been made to insert a GTube into India's belly. She isn't getting enough nutrition and for the most part refusing to eat.  India currently has a NGTube to provide her nutrition but this hasn't worked the way we hoped and it's not a long term solution

The surgery will take place tomorrow and I'm scared. Not because of this procedure as it doesn't take but an hour. I'm scared because India is so fragile and the thought of another operation in less than 24 hours when she's not been able to recover from the last in January. 

But numerous doctors are telling me that it's necessary for her survival.

Normally, next week India and I would be driving up to Colorado to water the Iris and feed the Chipmunks...  This year has sucked.
