Baby update

Justin has a little jaundice. He is doing OK, but it's not resolving on its own, so we are doing light therapy with a special LED blanket. He looks a little like an alien baby on his glowing green blankie. He stays on the blanket all the time, except when we are changing his diaper or clothes. We went back to the pediatrician today, and his number came down a bit, but we'll keep doing the blanket for another 2 days, then see the doctor again on Thursday. We're hopeful it will resolve itself in the next few days, especially now that my milk has come in. This should help to clear out all the bilirubin in his system.
