Buckeye Boy

Mikan's g-tube infection is much better, but he is still on his antibiotic. I think we caught it early enough that it didn't do too much damage. We're happy we were able to take care of this at home.

Mikan is getting used to his SMOs. He still isn't showing any interest in standing, but his PT has noted his improved stability. We're just happy he isn't screaming when we put them on anymore.

Mikan's sleep study is scheduled for mid-May, but we are on a cancellation list, so we hope to get it taken care of earlier.

Mikan has rediscovered a football toy that was given to him at birth. It alternates between playing the Ohio State fight song and yelling "Go Buckeyes!" when it hits the ground. Mikan LOVES it. He cheers and dances for the Buckeyes whenever the football prompts him. If any family members are disturbed by the video below (Ahem...Uncle Ben...), then perhaps they may want to find a Notre Dame football for Mikan. I think it will take an equally awesome Notre Dame toy to get Mikan back on the Fighting Irish side.

This weekend (despite the crummy forecast), we are walking to support the March of Dimes with our family and friends. You can still donate by clicking on the March of Dimes badge in the left margin of this page. Thank you to all who have donated. We are excited to be a part of such a wonderful organization.

I am so glad that his g-tube infection is clearing up! Also glad he is getting used to his SMOs. It is so hard when our kiddos take a while to get used to their "accessories".

I love that video! He is so cute when he throws his arms in the air and cheers! Way to go Mikan!
