Eye Update

We went to the paediatrician this morning. It turned out to be uneventful. 

He's not too worried about F's eyes at this point. He usually gives babies until 9 weeks after their due date (ie end of Feb) to get their eyes coordinated and start smiling before he does anything. 

He did note that F's divergent squint is quite uncommon though, so given her history, we'll get a head ultrasound on Monday. We've also made an opthalmologist appointment for a couple of months time if needed. 

We also asked about the possibility of propranolol treatment for the strawberry birthmark on her forehead. He doesn't think it's big enough to warrant it at this stage, but we can revisit this in the future. 

Keep praying for focus and smiling. And patience. And sleep - it's been a long and tiring week.
