New problem :(

Now that mom's lungs are recovering well, she has developed a new problem : she's not able to digest her food and the PEG stomach tube has been continuously leaking. This is even after her feed has been reduced to a tiny baby amount.

We've stopped it completely now. Her 5pm feed was the last, and every hour there has been a lot of overflow. Mom's skin around the tube has become red and very sore. Poor thing. I wonder what's causing this. Is her stomach not functioning anymore? Why? What can be done? If this goes on, how will she get any nourishment?

Worry, worry...
