Well, we're in the hospital. Lucy's bili levels kept increasing, and she was really limp and lethargic on Friday night. We took her to the ER, and her levels were 17.3. She perked up some and they sent us home, telling us to keep her peds appointment for Sat. morning. By Sat. morning, she was really tired/limp again. The doctor didn't seem overly concerned about her levels, but I expressed my concerns, especially that she wasn't eating well. We were offered the option of checking back in for bili lights/blanket treatment, so I decided that would be best for her. She's been on the lights now for almost 24 hours. Last night, her levels were down to 15.1. She's also gained about 4 oz, and seems a lot better already. It's really hard not being able to hold her except for feedings, but I think this is what's best for her at this point. I want my little girl healthy!
