Little juvenile green “Daisy” began getting tube fed today. Having progressed from a mister to shallow water, she is still not actively eating on her own. A few bites of lettuce here and there won’t cut it, so we started the tubing process to ensure that she is receiving an adequate intake of calories. Pedialyte and “turtle chow” mushed together goes down the esophagus like gruel, beginning the digestive process in the stomach. As her medicinal regimen continues and her energy strengthens, we believe we’ll see even less flipper tremors.
