Well, after all of our personal preparation for today's eye exam, the eye doctor said...the boys have immature eyes. I think my limited medical degree could have made that diagnosis!! After some further discussion, it sounded like that is a very common diagnosis at this gestational age. The boys will now have eye exams every 2-weeks, and our nurse today guessed they would have the same diagnosis after their next eye exam. The bright side is...we didn't hear any bad news!!
The boys had a good day. No real changes, but their personalities continue to develop. They were both just WIDE awake tonight, which is always a lot of fun for us. Wes had a bit of a bee in his bonnet while we were doing his care and he had his breathing treatments, but after that, he cooled down, was flipped to his tummy, and just watched the world go by. Max was much more relaxed, and I got to hold him for a few precious seconds while one of our favorite nurses, Ashley, changed his bed. We took lots of pictures, which are shown below.
The first one is Max yawning a bit and getting ready for a long, hopefully quiet night of sleep.
And this is Wes, all wide eyed and trying to reach his CPAP tubes so he can rip it off. There is a running joke that Wes secretly lifts weights in preparation for his next opportunity to pull his breathing apparatus off.
