A G-tube is a feeding tube inserted from outside, directly into the stomach. It's permanent, unless it's removed. It's a way to get food into the stomach when you cannot get it through the mouth and esophagus.

Dear Colette,

I am sorry to hear about your Dad, why has the decision been left to you? I don't you have power of attornie on you dad's behalf?

I'm sure if you research G-Tube through archives you will get your answer. Hopefully Helen Dynda will see your urgent message and point you in the right direction.

We of-course are all pulling for you Colette, you and your dad are in our thoughts & prayers. Stay calm, and research....ask loads of questions, when you feel confident you have enough information. hang in there....

love, hugs & cheers
