Elise's doctor said today that she's continuing to do well and even used the word "fantastic" again to describe how well she's doing. He said she still has the murmur but that the PDA is probably just taking it's time to close. Pray for the closure. She can go home with it still open, but that will mean visits with a cardiologist to follow up. And the fewer doctors we need to take her to the better.
This afternoon during my visit Elise decided to shoot poop all the way to the end of her incubator, coating the incubator wall. It was amazing - like a water fountain but with poop instead of water. The nurse asked if I had a clean diaper down under her dirty one. And, of course, I did. Elise had just kicked that diaper down flat (while I was trying to make sure her bum was good and clean from the poop that was in her dirty diaper) right before pooping. Argh. The nurse ended up having to replace Ellie's incubator entirely because some of the poop dripped down into the base of the incubator. Gross, I know. But she's so darn cute.
