What's a PEG?
So, "Living on a PEG"… begs the question what is this PEG thing the author, Jack Teeter is writing about?
Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy (PEG) is a method of placing a tube into the stomach. So this person: Sonny Jacobs, has a tube -- a feeding tube -- in his gut.
Wow! Wonder I what that's like?
Why does he have the PEG; what condition brought about such a life-changing event in Sonny's life? It obviously is his way of getting nutrition; what kind of food is it? What does it taste like -- or is there any tasting involved using a PEG? Can a person live a full life only on that stomach-tube feeding? Does he have to cut back on… uh… living his life?
Wait -- I have more questions. Is the PEG permanent? Will Sonny never eat or drink anything -- ever? Wonder how many people are living on a PEG in the USA? (Answer: 31,000 in the year 2000.) And one last question: Sonny, don't you miss eating, don't TV 'foody' commercials drive you crazy, do holidays (with all the pomp and circumstance surrounding say: Thanksgiving dinner) make you sad?
Jack Teeter has written lots of books, but I dare say this is his most personal -- and to me, his most compelling. Thanks for sharing, Mr. Teeter, and for giving us an insight into "Living on a PEG".
