ROP update

Friday, March 20, 2009

Clint and his old roommate Ben went in today to give her a blessing to help her through this surgery. She needs to be intubated again and we're hoping for a quick rebound off of it. The eye doctor came in today to check her eyes again with the expectation that they would be worse and surgery would be required today. Her eyes are the same. The SAME. Which is actually really good! He postponed surgery to Monday. He didn't want to do surgery in case her eyes miraculously fixed themselves (which can rarely rarely happen). He will check her again Monday and we will go from there (with probable surgery). This girl, with the help of the Lord through the blessings from Clint, has proven herself capable of just about anything and I'm really hoping and praying for the eyes to fix themselves. I know it's EXTREMELY far fetched but I've got 2 1/2 days of prayin' to do so we will see.

Count us in for a special fast on Sunday!

We have grown quite fond of sweet little Darbi and her valiant fight! :-)

And Audrey... we've always been quite fond of you!!! Hang in there.

Oh, that is wonderful news! Come on, Darbi! We're praying for you, you can do it!

We're praying for you, too! Connor had to have the ROP surgery, and his prognosis now is very, very good. He'll likely wear glasses, but he was genetically predisposed to need them anyway. These preemies are amazing - they can overcome anything!
