She started to get tired after about four days and quickly had lots of A’s and B’s. Which is where her heart rate drops and she forgets to breath. It’s really common for all preemie babies. It was really hard to see after have three days without a single episode. They found that she had a PDA which is a valve near the heart that pumps blood to the lungs and normally closes for preemies after 4-5 days and hers was not closing. They started her on ibuprofen and Tylenol to try to close it. After three days they did a new echo on her heart and it was smaller and closing.
