We saw a "new" pediatric ophthalmologist today in Madison (and it took a long time to get there with the crummy roads... many thanks to my mother-in-law for driving us there). Micah's far-sightedness seems to be a bit worse than the last time he was seen. This doc thinks there's a possibility that by putting Micah in glasses to correct the vision issue, that might address his strabismus (cross-eye) and eliminate the need for surgery. We're all for that!
So... anyone out there reading this who has experience with a one-year-old in glasses, please share your thoughts on what kind works well. There seems to be an option that wraps all the way around. Not very attractive, but the idea is to keep the glasses on his face and survive being tossed on the ground a lot, I guess.
On a separate note, I spent 8 hours in Labor and Delivery on Monday. My OB sent me up there after less than 30 minutes on a monitor. Baby's heart rate dropped significantly during a contraction and she wanted to make sure it didn't continue to happen. It only happened once more, but I did have an increase in contractions. So I ended up getting a steroid shot for baby's lung development (and the second shot yesterday). I'm also taking procardia to hopefully reduce the contractions. I'm 33 weeks along, and we REALLY want to make it to Feb 3rd for my scheduled c-section. I'll be 36 weeks then. Yes, even that is early. That's due to the complications I had with Micah's birth (I had a major uterine window and almost ruptured, so the docs don't want me to go into labor). Anyway, please pray that this baby would continue to bake healthily for almost 3 more weeks. Thanks!
