EYE EXAM

Yesterday afternoon Max endured yet another extensive eye exam. Coloboma is a common eye problem with CHARGE (80% - 90% probability) and causes severe loss of vision. MAX DOES NOT HAVE COLOBOMA! WOW! This was amazing news. A few weeks ago we were initially told that he most likely did not have this issue, but I wanted to be reassured on this and other eye matters. He also does not have glaucoma (which they thought was a possibility last week) or detachment of the retina (problem with preemies).

So while Max did not enjoy his exam (he was on morphine so he actually handled it pretty well!), I definitely enjoyed the good news!

This evening Max will be visited by his Uncle David and Aunt Meredith. So excited to introduce my beautiful baby to more family!
