Mikan's Big Day Out

Mikan's mohawk was the result of surgi gel combined with a few nurses with a little extra time on their hands. Everyone loves Mikan's hair.

As a result of some good gases this morning, Mikan's rate was dropped from 15 to 10 bpm. He's been in about 40% oxygen for most of the day. Today we put all of Mikan's travel equipment together in his stroller and the doctors let him go for a ride outside of the NICU. He loved it.

We found out today that we will have to switch home health care agencies because our first choice could not accommodate 16 hours a day for a month. A few of the NICU nurses have volunteered to apply and work for the other home care agency in addition to working at the NICU in order to help fill the staffing voids. Mikan is lucky to have such great people taking care of him.
