Watching a kid grow can be slow

They've heard the PDA again, which is no good and has been gnawing at Taryn since they first told us about it on Day Two.  Since there is less chance that the medicine (indomethacin) will work and they aren’t sure the PDA warrants a surgery they are taking a wait-and-see approach. The doctor spoke more about the PDA and how the body would close it near regular term (2-week adjusted date in preemie-lingo).  While the PDA was a bit of a bummer the pressure on Calder’s ventilator was good and he’s up to full feeds so they've removed the ‘electrolyte’ infusion and the PICC that it was flowing through.  A mostly good night.
