A Quick Update

I took Peyton to the ophthalmologist this morning. I am very pleased to report that for the first time in many, many weeks, we have NO bad news to report! Whatever swelling that was inside her left eye is now small and just on the periphery. We're to keep giving her the steroid drops in that eye every hour. The doctor also got very good red reflexes from both eyes for the first time in ages. She seemed very pleased. We'll follow up again in a week.
After losing a pound in the first week Peyton was off the feeding tube, she has gained back a few ounces. A pound was too much to lose, so we're pleased she's coming up again. She's doing better taking her bottles as well. She's getting about 20 oz a day now. She needs to be taking in at least 25 oz. I feel confident that we will get there soon.
Peyton is rather fussy this week as she has her 4 top teeth coming in all at once. Aside from that she seems to be doing well. Last Sunday, I took Moira to the ER after her temp went up to about 105.5. It came down after a cold bath, but was still over 102 when I took her in. Turns out she had a bad ear infection. She is getting better but is still a little cranky at times.
Not too much else to report for this week. I'm not sure what to do with myself today with so little going on with Peyton! It's a good thing though. These times seem few and far between, so we're due for this! Will keep you posted on how she's doing.
