buh-bye

Eliot had a G.I. appointment this morning, and after hearing about her progress with oral eating, the doctor decided it was time to remove her g-tube. (Thank god I packed my camera!)

A few tugs later, and our beautiful daughter was tube-free. Friends, Eliot is TUBE-FREE for the first time in almost two years.

After the appointment, we took her to eat at our favorite New York-style deli, and boy did we celebrate our matzo balls off!

El, we're going to take out your tube TODAY!

"Atti-tube!"

The removal was painful, and she was pretty unhappy . . .

But, she recovered quickly, and is doing great now.
