Happy Birthday

Yesterday Jenna celebrated her 25th birthday. Mikan was all dressed up for the party that we had in our NICU room. There were balloons and streamers throughout our room. Mikan and the nurses made her a card. It was an excellent surprise and we are very grateful to the nurses and Ronald McDonald organization for the cake and dinner.

Mikan appears to be recovered from any infection/pneumonia he had in the middle of the week. He has gone from 27 cal. per ounce to 24 cal. per ounce formula to try and help his digestive system from being as explosive and gunky. He has been awake and eating more during the day (or at least yesterday). It is difficult to describe patterns in Mikan's behavior, because each day has significant differences. He likes to keep the nurses guessing with never a dull moment.

Jenna's birthday present from me was 30 pounds of blueberries in the freezer. We recommend Rambo's in Southwest Michigan or the Blueberry Ranch in Mishawaka. Rambo's had tastier berries. Mmmmmmm berries.

Also, all comments will not be posted immediately anymore. I have decided to moderate comments because of my sister Annette's latest post. Way to go Annette.
