PDA is the topic of the day

Rhys had another echo cardiogram this morning to check out his PDA. The last time they did it the reading was "large" PDA, and I'm hearing grumblings of what this echo revealed, but I'm waiting on the official word. My question is this, "large" relative to what? Is there a range of sizes that determine how you categorize it, or is it merely based on the cardiologists perspective? From what I understand it is the latter. I'm told that there are only a few cardiologists that read these things, so hopefully we'll get the same person and have some consistency.

Other than that everything is much the same as yesterday. No major changes to the vent settings and his oxygen is in the 40s.
