We don't have a lot of news to report. Mikan is sick again with a new respiratory something or other; this time it has affected his eating, but I think the worst of it may be over.
Next week Mikan will see a few specialists so we may have some news on the medical front.
This week we visited a new neurologist who was pretty quick to recommend Botox injections for Mikan's tight gastroc muscle. When I told her that he regularly sees a physiatrist who said Mikan was not spastic enough to justify Botox injections, she said she was fine with waiting four months to see his how he progresses. I can see regular improvements in his walking, so I really don't think this will be necessary.
Below are a few pictures from the past week.

Poppi teaching Mikan how to drive.
Mikan drawing numbers on our deck with a fly swatter stuck down the back of his pants. Why? Who knows.
