Brandon had an opthamologist appointment this morning. His eyes still do not have plus disease so he still does not need the laser surgery. Dr. Turtel says they look good enough for him to come back in 2 weeks instead of next week. We have been going weekly since he was discharged. His eyes still have not finished developing even though he is past his due date when they should have which is why he needs to go back.
The visiting nurse also came today. Brandon weighs 7 pounds, 15 ounces. That was naked so I guess yesterday's weight even though he had his diaper and onesie on was accurate. We did tummy time with Brandon while she was here and played on his playmat. He was wide awake for a few hours this morning just looking around and kicking. He also has been downing his 3 ounce bottles the past few days so I am slowly increasing the amount he drinks by 5 cc's a day.
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.
