His eye exam yesterday was OK, not great. some mild ROP--but the ophthalmologist says it's the type that often resolves on it's own--but he'll need follow-up, as do all preemies. he advised me not to worry about it. i won't. i have too many other things to worry about.
Nora opened her eyes for me today finally. She looks better, color-wise and was acting a bit more feisty today--kicking and showing she wasn't happy with how she was positioned. She's still on the ventilator and is still acting sick, but overall i think better. She does have an infection. her blood cultures were positive for probably staph. but she's on the right antibiotics. They aren't sure where the infection is coming from---lungs and gut are suspects. she is back to not getting her feeds in case the gut is the source of the infection. Her eye exam showed no evidence of ROP, but again, she'll still be following up with the eye doctor b/c she's a preemie.
