Well, Carter is our first to have a bad case of jaundice. Not bad enough to stay in the hospital, but bad enough to have a "Bilibed" delivered to our house to boost his bilirubin levels. I didn't think much of it at first, but when they said he had to be on it 22 of the next 24 hours and only take him off to feed, well, that's kinda sad. You have a bundle of joy delivered into your life and after 2 very long days surrounded by tons of people in the hospital you have to go home and can't hold him for another two?
Well, great news. He's doing better and they picked up the 'bed' today so we've been enjoying him more than ever. He did pretty well, but it was sad to see him in there. Kaylee and Austin can't get enough of him and he's been sleeping really well so far. Even on the Bilibed. Last night he only woke up every 3 hours to eat. Can't complain about that for being 5 days old. Austin didn't do that until he was probably 1!!!! Okay, maybe a little exaggeration there, but it felt that way. We pray Carter will keep on keepin' on the path he's on now.
Kaylee and Austin seem SO big since Carter was born. Wonder why?
