First Doctor's Visit

Mikan's first doctor's visit went okay. He weighed 10 lbs. 4 ounces, this is up at least 4 ounces since leaving the hospital. He received 3 immunizations today. He did the usual baby immunization thing, cry. If Mikan's feedings do not improve, there is a possibility of putting in a G-tube in about 6 weeks. Also, Mikan has had a little yellow nasal secretions in the last two days. We asked about this, and apparently nasal yellow does not necessarily indicate infection. Now, yellow lung secretions are a different story, and Mikan has not had any of these.

Mikan dislikes onesies and all other clothing. Maybe it is a late July thing. Maybe it is a guy thing. Maybe it is a Gensic thing. Probably not a Kartje thing. Clothing Mikan may be Jenna and I's most heated debate on a regular basis. She'll get some clothes ready, and I'll ask "Why?" This creates a look on Jenna's face that makes me want to go hide. Mikan is a hot body (referring to temperature hot).

Continued thanks for the help, prayers, and support from the community of readers and nonreaders. We appreciate the thoughts, messages, and visits.
