Has anyone got any suggestions on how I can clean G's teeth, she can no longer brush them, just clamps he teeth shut on the toothbrush. She won't allow me to do them for her. Using a child's toothbrush doesn't work, nor does an electric toothbrush. As for spitting, it's just not happening, more of a dribble.
In other news G had a PEG fitted on Wednesday, the surgeons allowed me into theatre with her which was brilliant and totally fascinating. I was even useful when the theatre staff and surgeons couldn't get the mouth plate in/out of G's mouth, so I could be in for a new line of business! The have to see the funny side or I'd go under! The reality of it is of course that G is progressing through this poxy disease. The dietician is coming tomorrow to explain things, and someone else from Nutricia(?) on Tuesday. So hopefully I should know what I'm doing in a couple of days, as I only know how to flush the PEG through and give water.
