No Surgery!!!

The PDA has almost closed with the third round of Indocin.  It is closed enough that the cardiologist believes it is not causing any problems to her heart or lungs.  They still hear a murmur but that is from the VSD which we will deal with later.  The recommendation of Dr. W is that we do nothing at this point.  No more Indocin so her kidneys can recover from that and no surgery which means not moving to the big hospital up the hill and she doesn't have to go through the trauma of surgery when she is so small.  She can sit back and relax and just work on her lung development.   YAY YAY YAY!!!!!
We are very excited and relieved. 
Thank you all for your continued thoughts and support.

Awww go Baby Blue! Found you through Boulder and am now anxiously checking for updates--my littlest has surgery Weds. at five months old and I can only imagine if he was that tiny (he was my only one to make it to term and supposed to be the "easy one"). If you want to talk about NG tubes, email me or something.
