Simon's first wight check is today and we where not able to make it with my reg pedi. He is still yellow and we noticed last night that he has a herniated umbilical cord. :eek: I'll update on what they think it is (he did not have it at birth) when we get home. Praying they say it will go away and we won't have to do anything and that he is not going to be sent back to the hospital because of the jaundice.
He has gained a oz since we got home.
We are going to deal with the herniated umbilical cord when he gets olded he may need surgery to fix it.
At 5pm we got a call to go and be admited for Jaundice his levels are 20+ and we are going to the big hospital not the one I delivred him at for over night (maybe 2 nights). I was told the pedi was happy with my milk and so I can refuse any feeding suplmental treatments that the city hospital may offer. For now we are just going for the lights. He was stuck 3 times today already and they told me to expect many more blood draws and blood typing before we get sent home.
Pray for our family today has not been a good day. Bill's 9 year old is also having surgery today in KY and it is hard on Bill to not get to be at 2 places at once.
