Boo, I'm so glad to hear you finally have your family all in one place. I hope Ivy continues to thrive and she gets all the help she needs with her remaining issues.

I have been so busy I haven't had a chance to post but wanted to let everyone know that Ivy came home on Wednesday, 3 days before her due date. We spent 98 days in the NICU.

She's not out of the woods yet though. I have to take her in to the eye Dr. on Thursday to recheck her eyes. She has ROP in both. Stage 2 in one and the other had progressed to stage 3. If it keeps progressing it will mean she has to be rehospitalized and have laser so we are keeping our fingers crossed that it is getting better.

She also has an ASD and 2 VSD's so we have to take her to the Cardiologist next month. We also have to contact Early Intervention so they can start physical and occupational therapy with her.

We are just glad to be home though.
