Brandon had a busy day today. He had his eye exam this morning. He still has stage 2 ROP but no plus disease so he still does not need the surgery. He will go to the opthemologist on Monday for his next appointment. We will take him to the Red Bank office for that since he is most likely being discharged on Saturday. Brandon also had his circumcision today and his first RSV synergis (shot). He also was taken off of the cannula today to see how he does without oxygen. So far he is doing well but they will have to give it a few days to see how he continues to do. Dr. Sembrano, the pulminary doctor, also came by this afternoon to look at Brandon. He will help to determine if Brandon comes home on oxygen and/or a monitor for apnea and/or a pulseoximeter. Brandon also had his hearing screening last night and passed.
