Update on Anna
I was able to go home today on strict doctor's orders to make an appointment and come back and see Dr. Love on next Wednesday. A few things I learned the past couple of days. Anna is considered a micro preemie. Her left lung isn't expanding and she has a heart murmur. They are laying her on her left side and then rotate to her right. There is medicine they can give her if her lungs don't start expanding on their own. Her heart murmur is caused by a channel in between her valves is open. Typically this closes up by itself before the baby is born, but Anna being premature she may have to get a round of a different medicine that will help. She is stable and thriving. She is still on a ventilator, but with very little oxygen. She isn't eating, she is getting nutrients through an IV in her umbilical cord. That's all the update I have so far. Keep praying for Anna.
