Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day Joseph!!!

Happy Father's Day Joe!

Benjamin is doing well- he’s been off cpap for 3 full days now, officially beating his last run. (<- watch me jinx it again…) After he’s officially off of cpap, he just has to be taking all of his feedings by bottle and he’ll be heading home!

The eye doctor stopped by on Friday and was happy with the progress that Benjamin’s eyes were making. The retinas are still unfolding- the right more than the left. Sometimes it takes months for the retinas to unfold all the way, and they won’t reattach until they are unfolded. The bad part is that the eyes won’t grow until the retinas are reattached so he’ll be losing a few months of eye development as well. We just have to wait and see what happens.
