My Poor Jaundice Baby

So Zoey has been having trouble with Jaundice. Since she has been born she has had blood taken. The numbers are not high enough for treatment, but she needs to be monitored. At the hospital they were pricking her feet, but at the pedatricion they want to draw the blood because if you dont it can break down the blood cells and can give false readings. Well today at the doctors office they had to stick her 5 times before they were able to draw blood. Finally they had to go through an artery in her wrist. My heart was so broken, She was screaming to the point where her poor throat was bleeding a little. I started crying after they tried for the 4th time. Its was so awful, but the test results came back a lot better than they have the past 4 days. Finally they are starting to go down. She will have to go back Friday to get blood drawn again, if the numbers are down again then she wont have to do it again. Never felt so bad in my life. Crying
