Our baby has to be readmitted :(
« on: February 29, 2012, 12:01:38 AM »
Tamootsen is one week old today  :)

Unfortunately his bilirubin is elevated and he has to be readmitted into the hospital tonight :'(

I really want to stay with him so I can feed him. Formula isn't an option because of allergies. Nor is it necessary because I produce plenty of sustenance for him. I do have a stockpile of expressed milk that I can leave for him if need be. But I would much rather be with my baby to feed him than leave milk for the nurses to feed him.

Prayers that his bili drops or that they could consider home therapy would be appreciated. He is right on the cusp of high bili. Ideally in a pre-term baby they want the level at 15 or lower and Taz is at 18. So we are close to being in the safe zone, but not quite there.

I just want to have my baby home with the rest of my babies and to sleep with my husband. :'(

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Here he is under the bili lights.

I am staying with him. Hopefully his 5am bili check will be better and we can possibly go home tomorrow. We will just have to wait and see.

Thank you for your prayers.

Quinault,

Everyone at church was giving glory to God at the birth of your child; may those same prayers be with him in this time of trouble.

He looks so cute with his little shades on! On his little tanning bed. I hope the next set of labs is better. i worked in PICU in the 80s, I remember how stressful it was for parents.

At 5am his bili was down to 13. Now the plan is to release him at 5 pm after he spends the day under the lights. He has an appointment with a mohel tomorrow that we don't want him to miss!

His bili was down to 9 yesterday. He is filling diapers like crazy. I think we have turned a corner. Hopefully March will prove to be the no hospitalization month for us.
