Mikan's status remains pretty much the same. He is still tolerating his feedings, yet his oxygen needs remain higher than they've ever been. He is now 3lbs 2 oz, but the nurses still want him to lose weight. His chest x-ray this morning didn't look any better. The doctor wants to wean him off of the vent, but he isn't showing any signs that he is ready for it yet. On a brighter note, he is fairly close to being moved into an open crib. He has been maintaining his body heat pretty well.

Uncle Steve, Aunt Jo, Maggie, and Grandma Harbor also visited today.

Mikan: "Geeze Mom, can't you put sumtin' cool on my hat like a dinasaur tail or a bunch of spikes. I'm working this chick in the next hotbox over, but she keeps laughing at that big fluffy ball on my dome. Work with me here!"
