Finally Starting to Settle Down
Wow, I had forgotten how much work it is to take care of a new baby!! With Kelsie in school and running girls to dance class, soccer, etc. it seems as if we are constantly on the go. On top of that throw in feedings, diapers, and doctors appointments and you end up with almost no extra time!! We do love having him and know that we will slowly get used to our new routine, it just takes time.
Well, Kyler had to be admitted to the hospital for jaundice. Both Kelsie and Kamrin had to have the bili light at home because they both had jaundice. Kyler's level was much higher than that of the girls and had to be admitted to the hospital to get that level down faster. When the doctor found out that I was Rh negative and that he had positive blood he said that the chance of your baby having jaundice increases significantly. That makes a lot of sense considering both of the girls also have positive blood. Anyway, we only had to stay at the hospital for about 24 hours so the lights helped bring the level down much quicker than a bili light at home would have. I took my camera to take a picture, but because he had lots of cords and an IV, I decided that I couldn't really take a picture of that. It was hard enough as it was just to look at him in that condition. We are glad that we are home. It is much nicer to sleep in your own bed and have familiar things around you!
