Baby Leah update(bilirubin levels)

Ladies I sincerely apologize for not getting this information to you sooner. I received a text from Erin that Leah was being readmitted because her bilirubin levels came back at 19.6.

Erin asked for any "spare prayers" we could offer for her. I told her I am sure here will be no lack of prayer lifter for sweet Leah Smile

Phoey.

I wonder why home phototherapy wasnt an option, it's so stressful on new parents to have to stay in the hospital just for the lights.

Hopefully it comes down fast!

I wonder the same thing as Star. Hopefully baby Leah will be home very soon, how stressful for them.

Sending hugs & love!

Oh, I am so sorry to hear this! T&Ps are sent doubly!

Perhaps home geraly wasn't offered due to levels? I know DS#4 was at 22 and was readmitted and went to NICU. I know at a certain level you have to get the down quick so perhaps the blanket wasnt enough. Could also have an insurance factor.

Either way, it is hard.

Perhaps this was just what was best for Leah. Can we please focus on positive thoughts for both her and Erin?

She's a nice strong girl, I'm sure her levels will come down quickly and she'll be back home for cuddles!

I'm sorry Erin. Lots of t&p coming your way.

Brandon was admitted to the nursery the day I left the hospital for jaundice and it was so hard to leave him there. Hang in there mama.
