NO TUBE CONTINUED!

Mikan is still hanging in there! He is doing really well today so far. His oxygen was weaned to 70% last time I left. All the doctors and nurses have been stopping by to check on him and give him words of encouragement. His primary doctor was on-call this weekend and he said he got four different calls in the middle of the night, and each time his pager went off he thought, "Oh no, it's Mikan." But for once, it wasn't. His cry is extremely hoarse as you can imagine. He doesn't make too much noise yet. He also has a problem with using his tongue to push out his feeding tube, so he has extra tape on his face. With the new apparatus, you can barely see him, but at least it's not ruining his lungs. I'll post some pictures later tonight.
