Hospital Stay

After we came home Elizabeth started getting more and more jaundice. When we went for a weight check on Monday morning they also sent us to the lab for a bilirubin check and after the drive all the way back home (about an hour drive) they called us and said that we needed to come to the hospital to be admitted because her jaundice was so high. After some tears and frustration and some fears we got her all set up and put under the lamp. We stayed for two nights and we were released on Wednesday night. She recovered well and her bilirubin is down. It's amazing how you envision the coming home of each of your children and for our fourth baby I never dreamed we would spend more time in the hospital the first week of her life than we did at home. But praise God we are home now, she is well and we are home enjoying life. Okay, we are trying to enjoy life but life with four kids all under the age of 6 is a little on the hectic side. Check in with us in a few weeks and maybe we will be enjoying life with a little less stress, and then again maybe not! :)
