Past the 3 1/2 lb Mark


Matthew is continuing to grow (though somewhat slowly this week). He was up to 1596g (a little over 3lb 8oz) as of thursday night.

Matthew's eye exam results have come back. Although we haven't talked to the doctors yet, they did say that his left eye only shows a mild change, but his right eye shows a moderate change. We don't know yet whether a moderate change is something to be concerned about or not.

Matthew's been on CPAP for over a week now. He's still desating occasionally, but generally keeping his O2 sat in the high 90s. Up until now, the doctors wanted to keep his O2 levels between 88-94%. Now that they know his eyes are having a little trouble, they want to keep him on higher levels of oxygen (94%+).
