Poor Elias can not seem to catch a break when it comes to G-tubes. Elias' new G-tube popped out just minutes ago while physical therapy was working with him. They were unable to get the malecot tube back in, so they placed the mic-key in, without inflating the balloon to keep the stoma open until Elias' surgeon gets out of clinic. We are not 100% sure what is going to be done now, but it certainly is par for the course, isn't it. We could only chuckle at the scenario, especially since Elias is in no pain or discomfort. Hopefully, later today we will hear from the surgeon on what he wants to do. Wish us luck.
