Question from Karen Betz on 4/9/2008:
Fr., I know that Pope John Paul II had a nasogastric tube inserted, but can you tell me if he ever had a PEG tube placed? Thank you.
Answer by Fr. Jay Toborowsky on 4/16/2008:
I do not know. I know there was an essay about the Pope's last days, written by his personal physician. Dr. Brunetti, I believe. You might find that essay online, because I think it gave specifics.
