Thanks so much, Diane. I appreciate your concern and good vibes coming our way!
We vacillated about which type of feeding tube and because his RBC count is so low and he's pretty weak, we were leery about putting him to sleep to put the esophageal tube in. It may come to that but for now the other seems to be staying put, though understandably, he doesn't like it much.
