Will had his surgery a week ago today, and his condition since then has made us believers in the need to close his PDA. He was doing well even before his surgery, and since he has been even better. He still has fits where he gets irritated and needs some sedation, but overall he is finally doing what they want and expect. They've increased his feedings to 6cc ever four hours, the most yet, and will likely turn off his nitric oxide for good tomorrow. That had been to help keep the blood vessels in his lungs open to help him breathe better, but he is doing well enough now that they don't think he needs it. All of this means that our little guy can really start to grow and get stronger. We're definitely ready for that.
