On the way to the pedi UPDATE first post

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.

UPDATE:
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.

Have they considered sending lights home with you? Seems less expensive than using the hospital. (That's what we had to do for a week with one of my daughters...her numbers were pretty high.)

Anyways, sorry you are having to deal with this...between Simon and Bill's DD that must be extra hard. Hope Simon's numbers go down fast!!

Change of plans. They want him under the lights for 24 hours and did not want to even check levels until after that (that would be 9pm tonight). Then no matter what they are they want us to stay another night off the lights and check his levels in the am. To see if he rebounds and then they will do another 24 hours.

But seeing that I have a special needs child at home and Bill is the one with them at my house watching my other 3 I asked if they could do it a bit before. I also stressed how our pedi told me it would be a 12 hour at most stay and now they are talking 48 hours and how stressful that is on my family. So I got them to agree to checking his levels at 6pm and if they are good going home tonight and going to the lab first thing in the am for another check.
