Brandon had an appointment yesterday with Dr. Turtel. He hadn't been in 8 weeks which is the longest stretch so far. For awhile we were going every week and then we finally were able to go after 3 weeks and now was 8 weeks. He looked at Brandon's tracking, looked to see if he was near sighted or far sighted (I forgot to ask what he was), and looked in his eye with a lense to see if the ROP was getting better. He said his eyes are looking really good. We don't need to go back for 7 months!
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.
