After a bit more than 48 hours, Loki was released from the hospital. His fever greatly decreased today, and he was able to keep in about a half-day's worth of food. He was very happy to be home, as were we. We'll try to write a longer update soon.

Thanks for all your support during this latest challenge.

Sending positive energy to Loki to fight the bug and the temperature and to keep the food in instead.

Anna juste mentioned that she misses him. So do I.

Thank goodness. Will you all be able to go to Indiana still? Sorry we missed you when we were on your continent, but hopefully not too much time will go by before we will see you guys again. Hope you have a great Christmas and Happy Neiuwe Jaar (guessed on spelling). Much love, Sar

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.
