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.
My name is Karen and I have been married to my husband Stu for a little over 9 years. I was pregnant with twins and lost our baby girl at 20 1/2 weeks after I had premature rupture of membranes. I stayed pregnant with the other baby and our first child, Brandon Tyler, was born on July 5, 2008 at 26 weeks and 1 day. Our second child, Wesley Matthew, was born full term on June 29, 2011. This blog is documenting our children.
