LIFE WITH LIVY
|11/19/2011 - Changing Livy's Mic-Key Button
Olivia is fed through a tube which we connect to a Mic-Key button that is inserted into her stomach. A Mic-Key button is a small plastic peg with a balloon on one end and an access point on the other. The end with the balloon is inserted into the stomach and is filled with water to keep the peg in place. Food can run freely through the peg and into her stomach. She receives all her food and medications through her Mic-Key. Every three months or so, the Mic-Key Button must be changed. The video details how this is accomplished.
