Mikan's eating is still horrible by most people's standards; however, his regular Pediasure intake is consistent, which is why his doctors don't think the tube is necessary.
Goodbye t-tube. We appreciate all you've done for us. But this year Mikan will finally be able to wear a life jacket since you won't be in the way. He won't have anymore stomach infections. I won't carry around syringes and extension tubing or a back-up balloon tube. On the other hand, I won't be able to slip Mikan's antibiotics through you anymore, but I'll figure a way to manage in your absence.
