On the way home from his doctor's appointments yesterday, Mikan had another episode where his trach got turned a funny way and he began to turn a little blue. We had to pull over and help him recover. We didn't have to bag him, he recovered on his own once we gave him an airway...go figure.

Mikan got a chest x-ray to see if his lungs were hyperexpanded from the vent which we haven't heard the results of yet. We are allowed to introduce baby foods now every once in awhile to see if it will help him eat any better. We haven't tried this yet, but we are excited about the prospect of it.

Mikan's g-tube surgeon reccommended a longer G-tube and he thinks that will help with his granulation tissue and leakage.

We think Mikan is pretty close to smiling...that will be a fun development whenever it finally occurs.
