You may have received an email about Jacob needing laser surgery for ROP. The surgery was at 8am this morning and Jacob did great. He did well on only a small amount of oxygen and only had one minor apnea spell. Brett and I were there until he settled back in bed. The doctor who performed the surgery, Dr. Varenhorst, said he will do a post-surgery exam in one week to see how things look. Depending on how that goes will determine future exams. Last night I attempted to breastfeed the Fighter, but he didn't seem interested. Well, for one thing, he was snoozing! After a few minutes, I gave him a bottle and he woke up to take that. He took 19 out of 43 ccs from the bottle then the rest was given through the ng tube. He had a pretty good weight gain and is now 4lbs 5.5oz. Fat cow!!!
