7 lbs

Veronica hit the big 7 lb mark earlier today.  Weight gain isn't something we focus too much on these days, but it is nice to know that she doesn't seem to have any problems in this area (she probably gets that from me :).  Some other good news we learned today is that Veronica's brain MRI came back normal.  She also had another eye exam which revealed that although she still has stage 2 ROP (retinopathy of prematurity). it is now regressing.  This is good news!  (Thanks for the prayers Lucy!) She will have another follow up appointment in two weeks - which hopefully will be on an outpatient basis. 

Still no word on discharge.  She had an event during her bottle feeding this evening which means she won't be discharged tomorrow since they would like her to be 24 hours event free before she comes home.  Maybe she will come home on Friday and give her big sister Josephine the best birthday present ever.
