It’s been pretty uneventful around old CHONY for Benjamin. He is getting back on track weaning off the CPAP, but is nowhere near his record 60-hour break. He is also making some headway on taking a bottle and is doing well at that a few times a day. And while he is gaining weight (now about 5lbs, 12 oz!) he doesn’t seem to be growing length-wise – been stuck at 43cm for a bit. I can’t imagine where he’s getting this shortness from. Hopefully he’ll get a growth spurt soon so he can be as tall as his parents.
The eye surgeon stopped by yesterday and while it’s still too early to know if the surgery was a success, he seemed pleased with Ben’s eyes so far. Supposedly his retinas are “unfolding” – which we are told is good. So keep unfolding retinas!
The doctors are also talking about scheduling his hernia surgery – so we are getting closer to coming home everyday.
