Baby Christina has had many doctors appointments since she was born and will have many more to come. Currently, our priority is preserving her vision which will help maintain her quality of life. Her eyes are almost always open due to her larger eyes and abnormally small facial bone structure. She really only closes them when she is outside in natural light and she squeezes them tightly shut because her eyes are so light sensitive. (Also in the sunlight is the only time she really ever cries.)
You can see in the pictures that Christina's right eye is bigger than her left. This eye has developed glaucoma which causes lots of pressure and can lead to loss of vision. To prevent blindness and to relieve the pressure, Christina is having eye surgery on Friday. We are grateful to have discovered her eye problems right away to prevent any permanent damage.
She is still such a sweet little girl and we love her so much!
And as a side note, baby Christina has the prettiest color of hair! It is a dark blonde with natural highlights in it! People pay lots of money at salons to get her God-given color!
