PDA (read, hole from when the umbilical cord used to bypass) are part of being a baby. Â If the hole doesn’t close, it can fill her lungs with fluid and make her body work harder, taking away from the ever important job of growing. Â Because waiting didn’t work, we are using the first round ofÂ IndomethacinÂ to close the PDA.
Upside: Might not need the heart staple thingy.
Downside: No food for 2 days, and an angry, hungry baby!
