Today was a good day. Owen had another eye test. The condition is regressing, and since he's almost term now the risk of it worsening at this point is very low. He doesn't have to have another test for 2 weeks!! He's been more relaxed today. The OT and the PT had a visit with him today. They'll be checking him out; assessing his muscle tone and such. They'll be teaching us some baby massage techniques! He's breathing well. They turned down his settings again today on the ventilator. The nurses were saying they could hear him crying a little bit today. That's a good sign that the swelling in his airway has decreased enough for him to have breath and sound around his tube. We're still hoping and praying that Friday is the day! We thank you for all the love and prayers. Please continue.
