Bili Baby

Von is one month old today. Life has been very busy since his arrival with the holidays and family in town, so here is my attempt to catch up on the events this last month. At Von's first doctors appointment, when he was a few days old, we found out that he had jaundice. The levels did not come down on their own, so for five days, 24 hours a day, he had to be attached to a "bili" blanket, which is basically a flat light that he would lay on. A nurse came out to our house everyday to check him and take blood, and finally by day five, his levels were low enough to take him off.
