Jaundice in Preemies

Mylze is now into his fourth day of life, and had been home less than 24 hours ( just an overnight) before having to return for bilirubin testing. His levels soared to around 19 and dropped drastically to 12 today. Its been very stressful on mommy and daddy, but we know it is what he needs and is best for him. One more test early tomorrow morning and we should be released to go back home at last. I can't wait to finally have my baby home for good. If he hadn't been so early we probably would have been discharged earlier today. He has been doing very well though, sleeping all day when he wasn't being fed. We keep a schedule of his feedings and diaper changes and the nurses check in on him every few hours. They've all been so good with him, I can't thank them enough.
