Eye Doctor


My mom and Tricia and Gwyneth are on their way to Norfolk, VA to, among other things, take Gwyneth to the eye doctor to check on her retinopathy of prematurity. We're hoping that everything is continuing to develop as it should, and that this could be her last visit for a while. I'll let you know what the results are.

Thanks.

Hope all goes so well. Those are some beautiful eyes with a beautiful little soul shining through. I just love looking at your pictures of her - she is amazing.

Thanks for sharing. As a mother to a 28 weeker I have a similar memory of those first few days. As the mother I was not able to see her until day 2. I also had a full term son (born first) so I know how it should have been. I continue to follow your story and find your family amazing.

Oh wow you put into words exactly how I felt when my daughter was premature six years ago while she was only six weeks premature she had several other problems that required a vent and all of the other trappings that go along with it. I am glad you got to take all the photos that you did I didn't get to do that as they wouldn't allow cameras in the nicu in our home town. I just hope that Patricia didn't have to also go through post partum depression as I did it makes the already difficult bonding process even harder. I hope her eye appointment goes well.

It all goes along with the territory of having a preemie...My son was born at 26 weeks...

i always feared the eye appointments we went to. i hated watching them poke into my girls' eyes as they looked closely at the retinas. The girls would scream bloody murder and i felt like they were expecting mommy to help them. I was the one holding them down as they squirmed and shook with fear.

It was horrible. My girls had several eye surgeries and Alyssa ended up needing a scleral buckle put on her right eye ball.

Those were some pretty trying times for me...
Hopefully things are better nowadays when looking for ROP progress.
