That is what I have been calling Warren for the last few days. He has jaundice and his biliruben count was 16.9! He has been in a bilibed (here at home) since yesterday (4/6) afternoon. Thankfully, he doesn't mind much, and he just sleeps. I can only take him out to feed and change him. We had his count checked this afternoon, and should get the results tomorrow.
In the pic below, Warren is lying on the bilibed in the cradle my daddy made for him. You can see the little straight jacket type thing that his arms are in. His whole body is in it, actually, under the blankets.
My mom has gone back to OK and today was my first day alone with Warren. It wasn't bad as far as caring for him, but I was an emotional wreck to say the least. I cried practically all day long. I did better tonight after Roy got home. My sister is coming on Friday, and I am so excited to see her and for her to see Warren - and for her to clean my house! She's a neat-freak and wants to come and take care of me, my baby, and my house. I can't wait!
Because things are crazy, I am just posting pics as I can. Below are a few:
Tonight Warren had his first sponge bath at home. He doesn't like to be messed with, as this picture clearly shows. Of course right after I finished sponging him he peed all over himself , so I had to start over! LOL He cuddled with daddy afterward, which made everything better.
Many people have asked how Cleo has taken to Warren. This was a pic of her the day we brought Warren home from the hospital. She was so excited to see inside the carseat. She is adjusting well, but it has been difficult for her, esp. to see her daddy giving love and attention to someone else. She knows Warren is above her in rank, and she is intimidated by him. I think she's warming up, though. After his bath tonight she smelled and licked his wet hair/head!
I got a surprise when I got home from the hospital - roses and expensive champagne!!!!
This is a cute doggy shirt that my former college roommate gave to Warren. He looks like such a little man!
