Good News:

Today we got the results back from Loki's urinalysis and the protein level has dropped from 2 to 0.8. Zero leakage is normal. The Dr. called it "great news." This very well may indicate that the protein leakage is a left over from either his surgery and/or the dehydration and could possibly resolve without further treatment.

We're happy and preparing for Loki's (and dad's and papaw's) BIG birthday bash this weekend. We believe we sent the invite to all our local friends, if we missed someone, we apologize. Please feel free to contact us and stop by

Loki is like the little engine that could - "I think I can, I think I can..." all the way to the top of the hill.

About Loki Sky

Loki Sky is a special little man. He was a very early micropreemie, weighing only 610 grams (1 lb, 5 oz) after 24 weeks, 3 days gestation, born to an American Father and a Dutch Mother in Berkeley, California on October 18, 2008.

On January 11, 2009, while still in the hospital NICU, his one kidney stopped working. It was repaired after three surgeries. After spending time in three hospitals in three cities, Loki came home on February 17. He struggled with eating, and then stopped in July, leading to 8 days in the hospital, a failure-to-thrive diagnosis, and a NG feeding tube. On October 10, a minor surgery installed a G feeding tube. Another procedure replaced it with a new one, and then again with a Mic-Key button in Jan. 2010.

In August 2010, he and his parents moved to the Netherlands.
