The past few days have been busy and we have not been getting much sleep. Haley had another eye surgery late last night. She was in surgery for four hours. The doctor wanted to get a better look at her eyes, but ended up doing more surgery on her left eye to try to save it because he found that her left eye (retina) was detached. The Ophthalmologist seems to think she will have less than a 5% chance of seeing out of her left eye. They are now worried about her right eye as well. They did not operate on it since there was nothing they can do. Only time will tell. They will keep close tabs on her right eye in the coming weeks. We still aren't sure how long it will be before we can transfer Haley back to Woman's. We will continue to pray for Haley's eyes and leave it in the Lords hands. We are hoping for a miracle. She was able to come out of surgery extubated and back on the nasal cannula. We were pleased about that. She will pull through this like the little champ she is. She is a very special little girl and we know that she will be strong despite not being able to see.
Our beautiful Haley
Rachel was seen today by an ENT (ear, nose and Throat) doctor. The doctor did not do the bronchoscopy, all she did was a consult. The doctor will perform the bronchoscopy on December 8th. We hope that she will not have reflux or any obstruction. We are proud of Rachel's progress otherwise. She is finally growing a little. She is up to 5lbs 7oz, which Means she gained an ounce a day last week. That is what the doctors want to see from her each week. We are so grateful for our precious little girls, they have such strong little spirits. We love them both more than words can express. We will continue to pray for their progress and development.
Feisty little Rachel with a death grip on that pacifier
