The constant care that a medically complex child demands can be overwhelming at times. You may have reached a point in the feeding tube journey when you needed a break from the beeping pump, the daily worries, the long NICU days, and the constant attention that a tube fed child can seem to require.
In the beginning, my husband and I were so overwhelmed by all of the new feeding tube responsibilities and were hesitant to put that stress on anyone else. It was isolating. We started to feel that it was near impossible for us to ever leave our son’s side. Learning that other people could step in from time to time helped open up a world of comfort and peace for our heavy hearts and worried minds. For this, we give thanks to our ‘village’.
Our friends and family have stepped outside of their comfort zone in order to care for and strengthen their relationship with our tubie, Arlo. It takes hard work, patience, and there is definitely a learning curve involved. Allowing other people into this world is such an important step in making the feeding tube part of your entire family’s new normal and to allow for the much needed ‘step away’ once in awhile. We are so thankful for this as we’ve had some time recently to reconnect, allow for self-care, and strengthen our needs as a family.
After appreciating the benefits of these breaks, we feel compelled to share some ideas with you so that you’re able to do the same. Here are some tips for you and the caregiver of your tubie to help this transition of care become a comfort instead of a concern.
