Jaundice

Baby Rachel was admitted to hospital yesterday afternoon for phototherapy (which is why I didn’t blog).

Her bilirubin (thanks Siew Lee!) count is 260. Doctor is worried that it could go higher, which is why he suggested phototherapy before it got serious.

With heavy hearts and wet eyes we brought baby to hospital.

We’re not allowed to stay with baby, because she’s in the phototherapy room with other babies.

We’re only allowed to visit for feeding.

She looks quite peaceful and contented lying there under the light. According to nurses, she only cries when she is hungry.

Good girl.

We hope baby can come home today.

In the room are three other baby boys… good thing they are blindfolded and can’t look at my daughter (grrr…)

Update: Baby’s back home!
