Muja got an appointment for PEG surgery.

In the name of Allah; the Merciful; the Compassionate - بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
May the peace, mercy, and blessings of Allah be with you - السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Insha Allah, Muja has her appointment for the PEG (percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy) surgery this Thursday at PMH, earlier than I aspected. This surgery is for placing a feeding tube on her abdomen.

Currently Muja is using a nasogastric tube, a tube passing through her nose and into her stomach for feeding because she cannot swollow. So from tomorrow. we can say so long to her nasogastric tube.

Local anesthesia is used for this surgery. An endoscope (a flexible, lighted instrument) is passed through the mouth, throat and esophagus to the stomach. The surgeon then makes a small incision (cut) in the skin of the abdomen and pushes an intravenous cannula (an IV tube) through the skin into the stomach and sutures (ties) it in place.

Insha Allah Muja will be in the hospital between 2 to 4 days. Please make dua for her that she is protected from any of these complications that include wound infection and dislodging or malfunction of the tube.
