Having the NGtube is a wonderful thing - we can now give movicol (much gentler laxitive) which he refused to take orally before (like thick vegetable oil to swallow). We also have no worries about his calorie intake. He's not quite forgiven us but I'm sure he'll come around to it soon.
I'm cutting down on my blogging for a while now as my fingers need a rest. Will be throwing the odd tweet into the ether though.
