Monday


Well, like any other day, we received some good news and bad news. Good news is that Mikan's third head ultrasound turned out normal with no signs of bleeding. Bad news is that his chest x-ray and echocardiogram weren't very good. He will most likely have surgery this week. Our doctor had a meeting with a cardiologist to discuss Mikan's ductus today and we will hear the results of that meeting tomorrow and possibly know more about a scheduled time for the heart surgery. He is still pretty swollen from all of the fluids that are constantly pumped into his body each day.

John and I bought a much needed chest freezer today. John can't stop talking about all of the fruit and pies he will be able to store year-round.

Uncle Steve and Aunt Sandy visited today and brought a wonderful dinner. We appreciate everyone's continual prayers.

I would love to have some ear protection for my son in his isolette. Where did you find the yellow ear muff.

Thanks,

Stephen

We got ours from the NICU. We were glad they had them. Sorry, I can't be of any more help.
