Mikan had been pretty lethargic the past couple of days. Therefore, they did a blood test to check for infection and it came back negative (which is good). A blood gas also showed a good level for his CO2. He lost a 40 grams today (1 1/3 oz.), but he gained around 70g yesterday.

We're another day closer to going home. Jenna talked with the social worker today and we are in the process of acquiring the necessary materials for home care. Hopefully, insurance red tape does not prolong the progression, as it has for others in the past. We have various random things to take care of in order for him to go home. Each day we hope to knock out a few of them to be ready when the time comes.

Preparing to take Mikan home. 'Mikan' & 'home', two words that sound almost strange together after the long hospital beginning. I bet he's soooo ready for the home atmosphere too. Kid's can turn your world upside down and in Mikan's case inside out at times, making your view of things amazing, don't you think?
Good Luck with getting everything in place for Mikan's homecoming.
Love Ya,
