The feeding tube is FINALLY out! On Monday my doctor emailed me about the tube. On Tuesday she called UC and confirmed the removal with the lung transplant team. Yesterday Kaiser called and scheduled me to have it removed. Today Beth took me to the hospital and they pulled it in less than 5 minutes. It took longer to register and wait to be taken in than the procedure itself. The best part was that they slapped a piece of gauze over it and sent me home. No stitches!!! I am now foreign object free! Well, my sternum is wired shut, but that’s permanent.

Leave it to the Korean mother to use chopsticks! Hilarious.
