Update on Will

The pediatrician at Willow Creek had asked us to get Will’s weight and skin color checked today, so we took him by the clinic. He weighed 8 lbs. 12.5 oz. (2 1/2 oz. under birth weight), which is normal for 4 days old. Dr. Youmans said he was a little yellow so while we were there we had them do a bilirubin check in the lab. We got a call late this afternoon to let us know that Will’s level was 17! That is very high. So he is sitting without clothes on in front of the window while there is a bit of sunshine left today. Tomorrow morning we’ll take him back to get checked again to see if they are going down or up. Please pray that Will’s eating and the sun can lower his levels, otherwise he’ll have to go under the hospital lights (not a bad thing, but just an extra thing to handle and work around). I’ll let you know what the level is when we get back tomorrow.
