SharePoint Get Item question

I am pretty sure I know the answer to this but I will ask just in case I am wrong. 

 

I have a flow that pulls info from SharePoint with the Get Item action. Later on in the flow I initiate a loop waiting for a field to be updated for the item that I pulled with the previous Get Item.

 

I currently have another Get Item within the loop to make sure I am getting fresh data. My question is do I need this? Or can I access the original SharePoint Get item action in the flow?

 

or in other words: Will a SharePoint Get Item action refresh as the data for that item has been updated? 

Thanks for the help!

Hello,
You will want to have the second get items.

When you use get items you get a JSON output.
If you update or create something new. You will need to get items again to get a new JSON output.
