I just got back from the hospital. Alex has Retinopathy of Prematurity, abnormal growth of the blood vessels that bring blood to the retina. If this abnormal growth continues the retinas could detach, which means he would go blind. Bleeds and the formation of scar tissue are also concerns. He will have laser surgery tomorrow morning to try to stop the growth. The doctors will know in a few weeks if it was successful. His eyes will be watched very closely over the years. There is always a chance of retinal detachment later in life. His vision could be affected even if the laser surgery successfully stops the growth.
Alex has been through so much, and overcome so much. I'm just trying to believe that he is going to be fine. His reinastimosis surgery is on hold at the moment. We need a lot of prayer, positive energy, and good thoughts.
