Veronica had her follow up ROP appointment this morning and the doctor described her eyes as great.  The ROP (retinopathy of prematurity) has regressed and laser surgery has been avoided.  Hooray!!  This really is great news.  We will return for another follow up in November but that should be the last of her ROP exams.  What a relief this is in so many ways. This does not necessarily mean that her long term vision won't be impacted by her extreme prematurity.  But I think wearing a pair of eyeglasses is a small price to pay for being born four months early.

I promise not to bore you with too many videos but I can't resist with this one.

  1. Haha! Look at that! She already loves him. :) Great news about her eyes...there's just nothing better than knocking those 'big things' out of the way. I agree, glasses are a small price to pay - but maybe she'll avoid them!
