Wait for an approval runs forever

I am using the template "Request approval (everyone must approve) for a selected file"  When it gets to "wait for an approval" it runs forever and never completes.  Any idea why???Screenshot 2021-11-10 105354.png

@S_Tran 

Wait for an approval will run until one or all approvers take action on the approval depending on how the approval is configured.  I suspect that the required approvers have not taken action on the approval.  Please note that a Flow will run for a maximum of 30 days.

Oh that makes sense.  Is there a limit of how many can run at once?
