Today was our baby boy’s one week birthday. Unfortunately we had to spend it in the hospital.
Zachary was born a little jaundiced, so we went back to repeat the bilirubin test today. The number was higher, so he had to be admitted to be put under the lights. Fortunately we get to sleep here with him in Pediatrics.
This is pretty upsetting to me… Knowing your baby is sick is an awful feeling. Hopefully tomorrow he will be much better, and we’ll be able to take him home and cuddle with him as much as we want.
