12/28/09 ROP

Juliana had another eye exam this morning and the opthamologist found evidence of Stage 3 ROP. We have decided to go ahead with laser surgery to correct her eyes. She will get it done 7:30 tomorrow morning. This evening we will kangaroo with her nasal canula on her face. She is getting brief trials off of her CPAP. She is 2 lb 15 oz as of last night.

  1. So amazing that they can do laser surgery on such tiny eyes! At what point after the surgery will they know if the surgery was a success?

    She’s so close to 3 pounds! That’s fantastic. 🙂
