I just got back from Pierce's bedside and they have the results from Pierce's PDA scan. It is flowing from right to left and not left to right so they cannot give him the medicine to close it until they can get the blood pressure in his lungs stabilized. They are giving him nitrous dioxide to help dialate his blood vessels. It also appears that Pierce has an infection, which can be bad for babies his size. The infection is probably the reason for the recent bouts of desaturation of his oxygen. Please pray that the infection will heal quickly, that his lungs will grow stronger, and that the PDA issue will be resolved soon. The roller coaster continues.
Grace and peace,
Nik, Lindsay, and Pierce.
