Monday: July 23rd
Weight: 5 pounds 2 ounces per Dr. Dickson’s scale. That’s a weight gain of 2.5 ounces in a day and a half. We are ELATED and SO THANKFUL!
Biliribun level: rebound test pending. he’s been off the lights for 24 hours and just had his blood drawn. We’ll know the results in the morning. Hopefully his levels are still dropping.
Dr. Dickson was impressed with little Davey today. He was expecting to see an emaciated baby and instead he saw our lil’ dude… not at all emaciated. Good color (a little on the orange side still from the jaundice). Alert. So that was very encouraging. We’ll stop back in the office again on Wed and on Friday to have him weighed on Dr. D’s scale again. I imagine the home nurse will return tomorrow, as well, to pick up the bilibed that’s no longer in use.
We had a rough night with ATTEMPTING to feed him every two hours, but we made it through. Your prayers have sustained us through those late night and early morning hours. We are blessed to have friends and family who love us enough to lift us (and Davey) before the throne of our Heavenly Father. THANK YOU!
