No more eye appointments!

The biggest irritation about Adam's eye appointment yesterday was that they overbooked. They put drops in his eyes right away in the waiting area so they could get dilated. But then he sat there for over an hour. That's just not right. First of all, they ask that he doesn't eat before he comes because they don't want the exam to cause him to spit up. Then it takes almost 2 hours at the appointment. That is just unacceptable. And then you get him home and he is so exhausted from the exam that he only eats half of it and has a bradycardia (drop in heart rate enough to set off the monitor) in the middle. It throws him off for the rest of the day.

But here I am ranting about something he won't have to go back for...yeah!

They officially declared that his eyes are development and he needs no further follow up for his ROP condition. Just another thing to check off the list! They do recommend that we bring both kids in at 6 months to make sure they are on the right path because it is common for preemies that early to have vision issues. If we do, maybe we should consider taking them somewhere else! There's my ranting again when I should be celebrating!
