Camdyn had her head ultrasound yesterday. Unfortunately, we didn't get the good results we were looking for, but it wasn't exactly bad news either. The area of white matter is still there and has not changed, and there is a new area of white matter as well. Both areas are described as small and have not become cystic. The doctors do not seem too worried about the results. They told me they were looking to see if the white matter area or areas have changed into a cyst. They said that it usually has become cystic if it is going to by now, but there is still always a possibility that it could become cystic. She will have a repeat ultrasound in two more weeks. The MRI that will be done before they are released will tell us more. This waiting game in the NICU is really torturous. In addition, the radiologist read that she now shows a grade I head bleed; however, the doctors said that they don't really see that. Either way a grade I head bleed is not bad. So, we will continue to pray for positive changes in Camdyn's upcoming head scans.

The good news is that their eye exams went well. They both show no signs of retinopathy of prematurity which is awesome! We've been told that it will usually show up by 34 weeks gestation which is where they are. They will have more eye exams coming up, but so far, so good. We are really thankful for that.
