Goodbye to the nasogastric tube that has been a part of Rose's life for the last 15 months.

She pulled it out two nights ago. So before re-inserting it for her, we thought we'd offer her formula to her in a bottle.

She happily took it, something she hasn't done until now. She took all feeds orally yesterday, and medicines too.

So if she eats, drinks and takes her medicine: no tube required.
This is a very significant step along Rose's road to a normal life.

Rose giggles with her wonderful general surgeon. One of Melbourne's best-known and expert paediatric surgeons, he has operated many times on Rose during her long illness. Nothing is too much trouble for him.
