Baby's first... visit to hospital

Hello All,
Marcy's husband, Zach, here. Marcy's had to take a break from blogging because we had a baby first yesterday: First Visit to the Hospital. Little Donovan's liver is getting up to speed, but it wasn't filtering out bilirubin effectively enough causing jaundice. Now, it seems everything is going to be OK. There is nothing wrong with him. But he needs a little help from some friendly blue light to break down this byproduct. Think of it as a baby rave party with goggles on, some house music, and a blue glow in the hospital room. It is more tough psychologically than physically and we should be home Friday night or Saturday morning. But it is enough. Wish us well.

    Awww! I'm sure he'll be just fine. That's very, very common.

  11. Oh poor thing. Having had a NICU baby, I know the psychological effects well. Last think you want to do is have your little one in hospital! But jaundice is really common and easily fixed. So he's right where he needs to be and will be home soon. Hugs and 'get well soon' wishes to little Donovan and "Hang in there" wishes to Mommy and Daddy!
