Thanksgiving with a G-Tube

What a wonderful time of year to spend time together with friends and family. This is usually my favorite time of year, but this year, I have a feeding tube in my stomach. I have Dysphasia which makes it hard for me to eat and talk. Unfortunately, I was unable to enjoy the festivities yesterday because I cannot swallow. Luckily, my boyfriend’s mom, Carla, makes puréed food that I can eat. A lot of people are astonished that its taking so long for my body to heal.. please remember that I had brain surgery and a lot of nerve damage. I’m healing at my body’s own pace.

I have a lot to be thankful for this year.

1. Being alive

2. My boyfriend, Robert and his family

3. My wonderful friends and family

4. Healing
