Well, things went just a little too well yesterday.  We got a call today from the hospital.  (I dread answering it every time they call)  The doctors were listening to Julia’s heart and could still hear a murmur.  So they did another ultrasound of her heart and found that the ductus had not really closed.  Everything was lined up to have the surgery to close it, so that’s what happened today.  Around 2:00pm Julia went into surgery and her ductus was clamped off.  Everything went well and it only took about 40 minutes.  The initial signs are good and they have put her on a normal respirator vs. the “special” one that she was on before. The biggest concern now is her poor little lungs.  We hope that this helps them.  Basically we’re back on thin ice for a while.
