Patients that are able to reach 80-100% of full enteral feeds (whether fed by mouth or through a nasogastric tube) 7 days after the initiation of feeds. Patients will be excluded from this group if they are ever diagnosed with NEC at any time during this hospitalization.
Other: Feeding tolerant
Patients with GI symptoms (vomiting, abdominal distention, diarrhea, hematemesis, and/or hematochezia) that persist for 48 hours or longer while needing to be NPO, this patient is retrospectively categorized into the feeding intolerance group. Patients with feeding intolerance may also include infants that are made NPO, placed on bowel rest, and are started on antibiotics to rule out NEC, but are never diagnosed with NEC. Exclusion criteria include patients that are continued on antibiotics for greater than 48 hours due to diagnosed bacterial sepsis or diagnosed NEC, and those that have a positive blood, urine, or sputum culture.
Other: Feeding intolerant
Any infant that is diagnosed (radiographically, by Bell's criteria) with and treated for NEC.
Other: Necrotizing enterocolitis
- Level of most abundant serum protein as determined by ELISA [ Time Frame: baseline (3-5 days after initial cardiac surgery), within three weeks of the initial cardiac surgery ]We will select two proteins with top changes that are involved in the pathways for intestinal inflammation, and levels will be determined with either ELISA or other techniques that are available.
- Level of second most abundant serum protein as determined by ELISA [ Time Frame: baseline (3-5 days after initial cardiac surgery), within three weeks of the initial cardiac surgery ]
- Level of stool biomarker interleukin-8 (IL-8) as determined by ELISA [ Time Frame: baseline (3-5 days after initial cardiac surgery), within three weeks of the initial cardiac surgery ]
- Level of stool biomarker calprotectin as determined by ELISA [ Time Frame: baseline (3-5 days after initial cardiac surgery), within three weeks of the initial cardiac surgery ]
