Tough night!

Well, Lucas is back on Bili lights. His levels just aren't dropping, in fact yesterday they had gone back up a point to 12. I have to say, having a 4 day old on lights is way easier than a 2 week old! He cried a ton last night. I ended up feeding him every hour and a half, and only pushed it to that by using a pacifier. Needless to say, I got very little sleep last night. Today we have to go down and get some more blood work done to check his level again and see if there is a major cause to his extended elevated levels.

So now he is finally asleep nicely on the lights and, of course, the other 2 little boys are wide awake! Hopefully tonight is better!

So sorry to hear about your tough night. I know how that goes, My second son had to do the bili blanket at home for a week and the part I hated the most was all the blood test for two weeks, it seemed like it was every other day :( I hope tonight goes alot better for you guys. Hang in there.
