Blue Light Special

After her 6th day on Earth, Brandy and I noticed that Emme was quite jaundiced so we called her pediatrician who instructed us to take her to the hospital to have her Bilirubin counts tested.  We took her in and results came back with a count of 17.  Normal is under 10, and a High count starts at 14.  They hospitalize at the pediatrician's office ordered a Bili Light to be delivered immediately to our house for Emme to stay under.  She was under it for three days and we went back in to test and her levels were down to 12, one more day and it was 10 and she was able to come off the light.  Yay!  We are so glad to have our little blue light special to be healthy again.  She is much more lively now.
