Baby Boy Update

Our sweet baby boy is doing great! Here is a pic from the weekend. He needed “photo-therapy” for high bilirubin levels (apparently a typical result of blood-type incompatibility), and they had to move the IV line (for supplemental fluids) to his head. That was super-sad, but they assured me that it looks worse than it is. Both the photo-therapy and IV are out now! All we have to do is get him eating 100% on his own and we can have him home. We get to hold him whenever we want, so that’s great. He’s doing “above and beyond what we would expect a 34 weeker to do!” according to the doctors, so that’s what every momma loves to hear. =)

He is just so beautiful! I am so excited for your family and so happy to see he is doing so well. You will be home before you know it. Looking forward to seeing lots of photos of the little man!
