Eye Exam - July 19th, 2016

Today we have your eye exam. Mom-mom is coming with us because daddy has to work. She is going to pick us up so that I can sit in the back with you to make sure you are all good! I am hoping that the appointment goes well!
We got to the appointment and there was no one in the waiting room. We got right in and the lady that took us back was happy to see you again. She said that you grew so much from three weeks ago. She did your first set of eye drops and said she would be back in ten minutes to do the second set. Ten minutes or so later, she came back to do the second set. She said she didn't think you would need a third set. She came to check on you ten minutes later and said that you were good and the doctor would be right in.
The doctor came to look at your eyes and said that he couldn't see anything! No more ROP! Woo hoo! He said that he didn't need to see you back for another SIX months! No more every two weeks finally! I was SO happy to hear that. It is always nice when things are headed in the right direction after what you have been through.
After the appointment, mom-mom treated me to lunch and we went back to the house to eat. She stayed for a bit and then she had to leave to go to a meeting.
That was pretty much the excitement of the day. We love you and are so happy that you have no vision problems so far. That was definitely a relief! Keep growing buddy!
