|There's no room to fist pump in here.|
I can handle a little jaundice, though. She's just hanging out in the regular nursery under the lights until her bilirubin level decides to behave. She's close. And hey, after 500+ days in a hospital? What's an extra 5 days or so?
Rookie level stuff, right here. She's in the nursery all of the time, except when she is ready to eat. They put her on a bili blanket and bring her to us for a half hour so we can feed her. A little glow worm.
|Don't worry, I know newborns don't smile.|
I am sure she is taking a massive dump.
|She insisted on seeing her feet.|
The lights seem to be working pretty well. Her level needs to be below 10 and it is stuck at 12. She is close! You can see the difference in skin color when you look at the place where they cover her eyes.
|Like a little jaundice Zorro.|
Adelle came out screaming her freaking head off, which was reassuring. Our favorite neonatologist was on service in the special care nursery at my hospital and came for the delivery. She assured me that everything was perfect.
Also, there's my guts right there!
|Adelle is all FEED ME YOU IDIOTS!|
So anyway, I am still in the hospital with Adelle. But everything is fine and while I'm ready to go home and I just so freaking glad that everything is...boring.
