Day +39 Prograf Capsules Suspended in Water

This article (written by a doctor at Stanford) says for liver transplant pediatic patients that you can suspend a capsule in water, inject it to the NG tube and flush it. I'm waiting for the doctors to do their rounds to discuss.

Aimee,

I have been reading your posts. is there a reason he needs prograf and not cycosporine? Jacob is getting cycosporine and it is given by IV but only for 1 hour twice a day. It was nerve racking at first, but I have been administering it all week and would prefer to do that any day to trying to get something in his mouth. I do not know if you can switch track now, but it is worth considering.

I'm praying for a resolution that will work for you and David!

Hi Aimee,

I sent you a long e-mail, as I also found some more information on administering Prograf through the NG tube. It was too lengthy to put on your blog.

Your article on your blog also states the same thing.

Our prayers for a quick solution.

Hugs, Ellie Lear Zemlicka
