March of Dimes Walk





We would like to thank everyone who donated to March of Dimes this year. We are confident that March of Dimes funded research that saved Mikan's life. The 4 mile walk was a lot of fun. Our team consisted of John and I, my mom, sister, my friend and her mom, and another couple who was also in the NICU at the same time we were we had twin boys. We also met up with one of Mikan's old girlfriends (primary nurse Dee) who we hadn't seen in awhile. Mikan had a great time being outside in the beautiful weather.

Tuesday Mikan goes back to the hospital for his bronchoscopy. He will get an outside granuloma removed by his ENT while his pulmonolgist does a scope to check the status of his malacia and removes any excess granulation tissue on the inside of his trachea. We'd appreciate everyone's prayers on Tuesday. This is a big step for Mikan. If everything looks good, then we will go ahead with a sleep study at Riley. We're not exactly sure what a "bad" bronchoscopy would mean for the future yet.
