Luca started his second round of medication to close his PDA (valve between heart and lungs). He will receive one dose of medication a day for 5 days. On day 6 or so he will receive a repeat echo to check and see if the valve has closed. If there is no change or not enough he will have to undergo surgery to close the valve. Once the valve is closed his lungs will be clear of fluids (right now the fluid is entering his lungs because of that opening) and weened from the vent. This little valve is the main culprit to all of his current ailments. Extra prayers for him are appreciated.
Anze is doing great. He didn't get any kangaroo care today but tomorrow daddy plans to spend that hour loving on his boy!
Pra Baba (great grandma) got to meet the boys today. The nurse took pictures and gave them to us; a sweet moment. Luca's nurse said she seemed quite emotional with everything. We are so grateful for all the wonderful grandparents are boys are blessed with!
Love from all of us to all of you!
