Back in the Hospital

Alternate titles:

Girl's Day at the Spa
Tanning Beauty
Blue Man Group Audition

At 4 days old Baby Girl and her Mama were admitted to the hospital again, as her bilirubin count was getting dangerously high. Our Boy had jaundice as a newborn that was bad enough for light therapy treatment as well, but we were able to do the treatment at home. It was hard on the Mama to have to leave home so soon, especially since her Firstborn had come down with a fever and sore throat and really wanted to spend time with her. But we did what needed to be done.

Thanks to everyone's prayers, we were back in the hospital less than 24 hours, and Baby Girl's count had dropped well below the usual mark for such a short treatment.

Now we are all once again happily spending time recovering together and enjoying each other's company.

That is an amazing picture of her with the foam sunglasses & what looks like a foam partial swimming cap. She looks so happy to be so stylish too!

So glad she's doing better! Now I hope Jack recovers soon too.
Take care.
