Here's a photo of Janneke and mom (Sara). Wednesday was a stable and quiet day for Janneke (and for all of us!). Her eyes were tested and, although small and inset, structurally they are fine. This is great news. We realize that her eyes may take a long time to develop, but when there are no structural concerns, that is a relief. Because Janneke had some difficulty breathing on Monday night and early Tuesday morning, the docs decided to give her a day or two to rest before any more tests or consultations. (The hoses around her nose are part of the CPAP machine which supports Janneke's breathing, but thankfully, it is compressed air and not oxygen. This means she is getting breathing support, but she is still strong enough not to need full oxygen support.)
We are so thankful for the emails, phonecalls, and comments from you.
We truly feel supported and encouraged.
