Puke, pee, poop and eyes

December 26, 2007
SO today Nate has thrown up twice and has peed out of his diaper twice... this means we have to move up to size 1 diapers! OH MY! First was micro preemie diapers, preemie, newborn, and now size 1. It almost makes me cry... he is growing up slowly but surely. Poor little Aiden... he truly is a blessing. He had a pretty bad visit with the eye doctor today. The doctor has discovered he has developed a disease called Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP). Which means that the retinas are not fully developed. Some of his blood vessels in the immature part of his retina have developed abnormally. Right now the doctor said he is in stage 3 moderate. It could need laser treatment so we have to go back on the 4th to see if it has progressed. His type of ROP can lead to retinal detachment and permanent loss of vision that is not treatable by glasses laser or surgery. If it has progressed then they will do laser surgery and stop the growth the blood vessels and then he will have nearsightedness. So if everyone can please lift Aiden up in your prayers. This little man has been through so much and he has beat so many odds. It goes to show how well prayer pays off. Life is a little scrambled right now.. but things always seem to work out.
