It's here.

Finally, after all that, it's here.  I hit the 'go' button on publishing just 24 hours ago and only now am I remembering to mention this fact here.  Life goes on, with its other plans for us too, eh?

Anyway, for those that keep in touch by following my doings here, the book is properly real, and ready for you to read.  Typos and all.  I found a couple, and then though - fixing these means more days and days of not having it out there for people to use, and besides, it will never be perfect.  It sure isn't perfect, but I know myself well enough to know that I could spend forever polishing this doorknob and never opening the door ...

So I commend this book to you.  It is a fruit and labour of love, made possible only by the sharing, generous and supportive hordes I have encountered online and elsewhere along my own tubie journey, and that means you too.  So thank you.  All I hope is that it makes a positive difference to someone, somewhere.

You can visit the website, peek inside the book, and click through to the store to order your copy right here:

It was Leonardo da Vinci apparently who said that "Art is never finished, it is merely abandoned" and that surely applies to works like this one too.  It has to find its own way in the world now.  Please enjoy; and humbly, thank you.


  1. Yay! I am so excited about this book. I just ordered it and won't hold any typos against you! :) I am so glad it is ready! Thank you so much.
    I was welcomed into the world of tubefeeding just a year ago with my now two and a half year old daughter. Since we started her on a whole food / home made "formula" she is doing much better.

    It has been a great resource for me to read what adults with tubes "eat" and what their perspective is. I have gained much insight from your blog. Thank you!

  2. Thank you for such a great book. I wish I would have read this as soon as my daughter's tube was placed. There is so much practical information that no one every told me! It's great and I will pass it along to others. Thank you!

  3. Great thoughts you got there, believe I may possibly try just some of it throughout my daily life...


  4. Thanks a lot for sharing this informative blog. Looking forward for the posts like this.
