Re: GranulationBy: Emily H (3:18 PM 05/16/2010)
Are you doing anything to secure the button or tube? I've found that the more Patrick's button hold still, the less granulation tissue we have. So, we use a drain sponge to make the button a tight fit and mefix to tape the button down really securely. You might even consider taping the tube itself to Josh while he sleeps so it doesn't wiggle.
My theory is that the more the tube moves while your child moves around (crawling, rolling, sleeping), the more the body tries to heal and overdoes it with granulation tissue.
