Good news from the eye doctor!

Emma had her eyes checked this morning (It has been a month since the surgery and last check). He said her ROP has regressed 100% and looks really good. We are still unsure as to how much loss of sight she will have or when and if she will need glasses. But, this is GREAT news. The best part is we don't go back to see him for another 3 months!!!

I'm not sure how much she weighs now but she's getting big. Smiling lots. Still crying lots. She's definitely more aware and has more awake period now. She's only waking about once at night normally around 2:30-3:30. Sean and I still take turns getting up with her in the night. She was put on zantac for reflux and it seems to be helping quite a bit although it tastes nasty and she hates the stuff. She is still eating between 3-4 ounces a feeding about every 3-4 hours.

Caden had his evaluation with the autism team and they diagnosed him as high functioning on the autism spectrum. We are working with the school district to get him into an early intervention special education program in the fall. In the meantime he saw the nuerologist and is scheduled for a "sleep deprived EEG" for concerns that he may be having absence seizures. We're also working on getting a second opinion on the autism diagnosis. He is enjoying his currwnt preschool. There are some behavior issues but overall I think it's great for him!
