Opthamologist and Pediatrician Appointments

This morning I took Brandon to Dr. Turtel, the opthamologist, for his follow up eye exam. His eyes still have no plus disease and are still at stage 2, zone 2 so still no laser surgery. Dr. Turtel still feels they probably will not get worse so the need for laser surgery in the future is also very low. I have to bring him back next Tuesday and then at that point he will probably start going every other week.

This afternoon Brandon had a pediatrician appointment with Dr. Sasson. He is now 6 pounds, 8 ounces and 19 inches long. The nurse said this is probably what he would have weighed if he was born on time which is a perfect weight for newborns. Speaking of my due date October 10th (my due date) is kind of like Brandon's second birthday. It is what is considered his adjusted age. For all developmental purposes this date will be used to track him. So even though he will be 14 weeks old on his due date, he will be 0 days old developmentally. Brandon goes back to the pediatrician next Monday but everything looks great.
