Daniel was born at 28 weeks, weighing 2 pounds, and in need of intensive care. Along with other complications, he did not have the ability to swallow. He was placed on a feeding tube and eventually had a “button”, also know as a Gastrostomy tube.
Daniel needed to be tube fed for over 4 years of his early life. He was brought home and continued to need to be fed using a Kangaroo feeding pump. As an infant Daniel was not afraid of the IV pole or the pump with all of its tubes and wires.
Daniel is a thriving 11 year old who no longer needs the Puffaluff or the IV pole, however he still keeps the giraffe as his stuffed animal friend.
