An Update

I hate to interrupt the birth story, but I had to give an update. As I had mentioned before, Josiah was having a jaundice issue. Yesterday we had to take him to the doctor to get his levels tested again. Well, the doctor called us around 10:30 pm and told us his levels were high, and he needed to go back to the hospital.

So the three of us headed to the ER to see what needed to be done. We spent almost 4 hours in the ER waiting. Waiting for doctors, waiting for test results. I'm sure you all know how ER's can be. They did deiced that they wanted to admit him into NICU so he could be under the lights for awhile.

After he got settled into the NICU we headed home. There was not any thing that we could do by staying, and Donnie and I REALLY needed sleep.

The plan is that they will keep him under the lights until his levels are down to a certain number. The good news is that I called to check on him a bit ago, and his levels are starting to go down!

I do have to say, it feels very odd being in the house without him now!
