Frustration

Mom is doing OK! She is so yellow she is almost florescent! She had a very frustrating visit to the Doctor on Monday. The Dr actually let himself into the back door of the office with a credit card! He was locked out! I won't give the Dan version because this post would be too long.

Her blood test from Monday came back yesterday, and her blood count was up, good news. Her belirubin (or Billy Madison as Troy refers to it) was up to 26!!! A normal count is 1 or 2, when she left the hospital it was 13. They scheduled the drain to be inserted this morning. We were so glad, and I think just knowing that she would soon start feeling better gave her some extra energy yesterday. She was supposed to check into the hospital at 8:15, but they just called and said there are no beds. Just our luck! We are supposed to call back at 8:30 and see if there is anything available.

Life has kinda gotten back to normal a little. If there is such a thing as normal after this kind of news. Everyone has gone back to work including my Dad. He actually work the last 2 days which I think was really good for him. We had family pictures taken on Sunday. Everyone has asked to see them, so here are a few.

What a good looking family - those pictures turned out great!! They should give Paula some sunglasses and let her sit under the blue lights like they do with jaundice babies!
Hope everything goes well today, you guys are in our prayers!
