Mikan was pretty fussy today, especially in the morning. Still recovering from circumcision and hernia surgery. He gets Tylenol every 4 hours. We had our second round of home ventilator training, Nina Kartje was there for both the fussiness and vent training. We are awaiting nurse assignments from the home care company. This could take anywhere from 2 weeks to who knows how long. Once we go home, we qualify for 16 hours of in home nursing for 30 days. This is viewed as "transitional care." Therefore, after the 30 days, we will not receive any in home nursing, regardless of Mikan's condition. It is not viewed as respite care. The only exception would be if Mikan digresses from his current path, or we appeal the insurance decisions.

Mikan and I will need to talk! After the FUSSY period, Nina needed a nap! No more of the trach popping out before the training! Mikan might be medically fragile, but he sure is STRONG! Can't wait to see him running around with no tubes and wires. God has a plan. Mikan is showing us that plan one day at a time. Nina loves you! Tell mommy and daddy they are doing a SUPER job! They both get an A+ on their chart.
