The opthamologist informed us that Henry has some hemorrhaging in the back of his eyes, including on the fovea of his left eye. The hemorrhaging will likely resolve itself, but it may leave behind some scarring that would interfere with normal vision. This condition hasn't made it to the top of our list of worries, but we have a followup appointment scheduled for next week.
Henry is coming home tomorrow! We are thrilled that this is finally happening. We hope to quickly achieve some element of normalcy and routine. The Evanston Hospital, while nice, will not be missed. The staff at the hospital has been working closely with us to ensure that we are ready for this moment. I speak for both of us when I say that we are prepared to manage his feeding tube and the scheduling of healthcare professionals.
More than anything, we want to feel like parents and act like a family. We will finally have this opportunity on Henry's three-week birthday.
