Tomorrow Mikan has a visit with a surgeon to see about putting in a G-tube. This should help the development of his digestive system because of the elimination of nasal tube. We do not know when surgery will be. Hopefully, we'll be able to talk with the surgeon tomorrow.

Other than that Mikan continues to maintain his respiratory status. No bacteria is growing in his blood culture. There is some stuff growing in his lung secretion culture, but the antibiotics he is already on should take care of that.

We'll be here until the home nursing is corrected, he recovers from surgery, and he is clear of infection. We think home nursing will be the limiting reagent in this reaction. We anticipate waiting longer on nursing than anything else.
