Mikan is now allowed to eat by mouth. Unfortunately, he is still only tolerating about an ounce at the first couple of feedings. We'd like him to take about 3 to 4 ounces.

Good news is that Mikan's steroids were weaned from 0.3 to 0.25 without any visible negative effects. This is one of the small steps for him to wean from the ventilator. Jenna is once again being fed by the hospital. They decided since she is still pumping and providing all of Mikan's meals, they could at least provide some of her meals. Nice.

There are two agencies putting out their feelers for home nursing right now. We hope for honesty.

Go Cougars, Beat LaPorte.

Mikan,
You rock buddy, We are glad that you made it through your surgeries ok. Maria wishes she could come up and feed you your bottles since you ate so well for her the last time we came to your house. Jack wants to come to visit you this weekend. Maggie wants you to be able to go home soon and not to go back to the hospital. Connor wants to tell your dad,
Go Cougars, beat Fairfield!
