A great day

Abigail had a doctor's appointment Friday, and it was a great day.

She's just short of 9 pounds, and everything looks so good that she doesn't have to go back until January. While there, we got two great pieces of news:

1. Her mild ROP (an eye problem that many preemies have) is gone, so she won't need monthly eye checks anymore.

2. She no longer has to be on oxygen. It's great to see her face and to not have her attached to cords!

We're keeping her heart/breathing monitor for two weeks for use at night. If there are no problems, we'll get rid of it then!

That's the total amount our primary insurance company has been billed for Abby's care thus far.

Some claims are still working their way through the system, but that should be a ballpark figure for the bill for her first five months of life.

Nothing new to report

By popular demand, here's an update: There's nothing new to report.

Abby is doing fine; we don't have a weight to share because she hasn't had a medical appointment in the last two weeks. She's behaving well most days and nights, but she has a tendency to keep us up a little more than we'd like from time to time. (I'm becoming very knowledgeable about late-night television.)

She's also showing great developmental progress, making more eye contact and focusing on things like toys. Developmentally, she's right on track for her adjusted age (around 1 month old).
