When they discharged us from the hospital he had slightly elevated bilirubin levels, so they told us to stick him in sunlight as much as possible and to bring him back in to have them rechecked at 4 days. When we took him in for his check up at 5 days his levels had risen some, so they sent me to have them checked again. The next day they got the results and they were still rising so on June 7 they readmitted him to the hospital to be under a bili-light to treat the jaundice. We were in the hospital for 36 hours before his levels were back down and we finally got to go home and begin a normal life. At his 2 week check up he weighed 8lbs 8oz and was 20in long. My mom stayed with us until June 18th and was heaven sent. She was the biggest help with Betsy, she helped Eric and I with projects around the house and she took Jetson for the night feedings and let me sleep! I was extremely sad to see her go!
Adjusting to 2 kids has definitely been a challenge. Betsy has been great as far as being a big sister. She absolutely adores Jetson. If anyone refers to him as "their baby" she quickly pipes up with, "No, that MY baby!" We're working on the gentleness factor. She loves to kiss him, hug him, and just touch him in general, but isn't always the softest. She is really helpful and will get anything I need for "baby Jetson".
