Today we had an eye appointment with Dr. Cheeseman. Morgan Kate will continue to have her eyes checked for the next few years because often times preemies are more likely to become cross eyed, be nearsighted or deal with glaucoma. However, after a thorough check up with Dr. Cheeseman it is safe to say that currently Morgan Kate is not dealing with any of those issues. Her eyes look great and we don't have to go back until mid-October. Such a relief and truly a blessing.
I don't know that there is one particular thing that has helped Morgan Kate the most. I happen to think there are/were several things. One, God himself. Two, the power of prayer. Three, the superb staff that took care of her during those first weeks and months of her tiny little life. Four, unwavering family and friends. And five, the research done by the March of Dimes.
So many people did so many things for Morgan Kate. So many people did so many things for Travis and I. And I personally want to give back. I have many creative ideas floating around in my head. But right now, I am certain of one way that I can give back. I am going to walk for and support the March of Dimes. If you aren't familiar with the March of Dimes or what they do, please take a minute to visit their website.
If you are interested in donating to the March of Dimes or walking with us on Saturday, April 25th you can click on the purple button in the right sidebar or you can contact me. The walk is in exactly 11 days and I can hardly wait. I am so excited to be walking in honor of Morgan Kate!
