The NICU called us today. Jaxon had a heart murmur. The doctor told us that a valve in his heart never closed (called Patent Ductus Arteriosus - PDA), so he is being treated with Ibuprofen through his IV. It's a 3-day treatment that hopefully works so we don't result in a surgery. Apparently this valve usually closes in the first few days in a full-term baby, and within the first few weeks of preemies. Jaxon's difficult day yesterday gave them the indication that this was the problem and they found it on a scan this morning. So please pray that the Ibuprofen works over the next few days. He will be fed only through his IV for these days as well now.
On a positive note, Brady drank from a bottle today. He drank 3ml which is kinda like 3 drops. So we will work with him on that each day.
