Emma's Eye Dr Appt

Yesterday we went back to the retina specialist. Emma started seeing him when she was 4 weeks old in the NICU and now we continue to see him every 2-3 weeks. Since she was so premature and on the ventilator her blood vessels haven't fully developed. She has stage 2 retinopathy which means there is a wall that has formed and the blood vessels have to jump over the wall and finish growing. Yesterday he said they were looking much better and she only has a 1-2% chance of something being wrong. We have to continue seeing him until there is a 0% chance. I did ask him if there is a possibility of her being blind and he said no. That made me feel much better! So we are going back in 3 weeks and hopefully that will be our last visit.
