1st Time Parents: Bilirubin update

Brock had his blood drawn again this morning at 6am to check his bilirubin levels. At around 8am the neonatologist came in and told me that his levels came down to 9.9!! He discontinued the photo therapy, but wants to keep him at the hospital and do another blood draw at 3pm. They said there is usually a rebound effect when they take the lights off, so they want to see how his body does without the lights.

I'll post another update later! I'm headed to see my Dr because my swelling is getting worse :-( Ugh...
