I have been meaning to get a video up on how I set up a new TPN cycle. I finally just did it one night and I think it turned out pretty well. I hope it helps people when combined with the pictures and written instructions.

I have more to update but that will have to wait until tomorrow. I started a new medication called, Relistor, and I have started seeing new doctors due to some administrative complications. I hope everyone is having a good tummy night ~

There were some interested in how a tube feed gets set up and how everything works together. I have made a simple video of how I start a tube feed from beginning to end. I hope it is helpful.

I am doing supplemental feedings. This means that I get some of my nutrition orally. I typically take in 1200 calories over night and eat what I can during the day. This is limited to the GP diet and often consists of carbohydrates such as pasta, rice and bread (toast). Absolutely nothing fried, fatty or high in fiber (vegetables and most fruits). I find it works best to keep to the bland diet. Sometimes there are things that I eat and pay for later. I know what they are and know well in advance that eating it will cause issues. It is just worth it at times to eat something I don’t normally get to eat (like chocolate covered strawberries!).
