Today I got a phone call at school from Jenna while I was teaching. Needless to say, I was a little nervous with her calling me in an emergency situation. It turns out that she got an eye infection and her eye swelled shut. Therefore, she walked from the PICU to the ER with one hand over her eye and her right pointer finger in a claw shape (GE ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR). The doctor looked at her in the ER and then an ophthalmologist also looked at her. She is on an antibiotic eye cream. But, with her being infected and me having a cold, neither one of us is at the hospital with Mikan. Despite her request, no eye patch was given.

Thankfully, Gam-Gam (Grandma Gensic) came to save the day. I called and talked to a nurse about Mikan's progress this evening. The nurse made a comment about Mikan's evening feeding, "Your mom is as stubborn as Mikan, so he ate about an ounce." This probably ties for the most Mikan has eaten in the last week.

We aren't going home on Sunday, which is okay with us. We may go home in the middle of next week. Mikan is doing well, his steroids were weaned from 0.20 to 0.185 today. It is interesting to see different doctors have different steroid strategies all on the same kid.
