Happy Thanksgiving




The evening we left our house to go visit the relatives for Thanksgiving, we noticed Mikan's nose running. (He looks a little out of it in the picture above) It hasn't stopped and he's now developed a cough. His activity level remains the same, but his secretions have increased. We've been giving him Xopanex since we returned home last night. We haven't capped him in a few days.

Last night Mikan slept for an hour in the car, and was rejuvenated for the evening. He didn't fall asleep until midnight. John thinks it was because he read him "Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed" while we were trying to get him to fall asleep. On the bright side, Mikan learned the "jump" sign last night.

Mikan's trunk strength is improving. He now enjoys ramming his Radio Flyer car into our baseboards.
