Bilibed

6.21.2013
We have been stressed about Reagan's bilirubin levels lately. When we went to the doctor's office on Monday, the doctor was worried that baby Reagan's skin was a little bit yellow. So he sent us back to the hospital for some lab work. After the results came back, he had a bilibed delivered to our house. Being the new mom that I am, and worried about just about every single thing, hearing that news sent me straight to tears. Reagan had to spend as much time on the lights as possible, until we could go back to the hospital the next day and have more lab work done. Tuesday, her bilirubin levels had dropped so he told us to keep her off the bed until we could go back Wednesday for even more labs.



Wednesday, we went back and her bilirubin levels had stayed down! So we got to send the bed back. We were all very happy to pack that thing up and send it on it's way! I'm so glad we don't have to worry about that anymore.



In the dark, her blue bed kind of looked like an x-ray machine. It looked crazy when she would wiggle her legs and you could see all of her toes through the top layer of the little jacket she had to wear. By the way, I love her little silhouette in that last picture.

Today was the first day this week we didn't have to go to the hospital for lab work, and it was SO nice to not have to watch my little baby get her heal pricked.
