June 7- wren's got a PDA. a valve that would normally close after delivery that often times will stay open in micro preemies. this causes the blood to circulate back to the lungs and overloads them. they treat this with a motrin like drug. (which is why pregnant women can't take motrin- it could cause this vessel to close inutero- when they need it open)
if this isn't fixed by the meds she'll have to have surgery where they clamp it off through her back. :/ please pray that we make it over this next hurdle- the PDA closing. we're just taking it one day, one step at a time.
another risk is a brain bleed. this could happen at any time. there's nothing to treat it, nothing to prevent it. it is what it is. they gave her platelets today. (my low platelets affected her). this is all they can do- just try to make it so that she can clot easier if it does happen.
