PEG Tube

We decided to have my dad get the PEG tube procedure done since he still could not swallow much after nearly 7 days without any food and his energy level was very low.

The procedure took about 15 minutes, a bit longer than we were told which was about 5 minutes.

My dad still does not say a word. I don't know how much he can understand. I still talk to him even though he doesn't say anything back. He seems to respond through his facial expressions as they are appropriate responses. He gets emotional easily it seems.
