Well, our little man has finally arrived! Brandon James was born at 6:05am on Wednesday, April 29th, 2009. He weighed 7lb 15oz and was 21 1/4" long. We went home on Thursday afternoon.
Nutmeg and Oscar didn't quite know what to think at first but they fell in love with him pretty quick.
On Monday, we had a scheduled check up at the pediatrician's office and noticed he looked a little 'yellow.' Sure enough, his bilirubin count was a little over 20! So when he was only 5 days old he was admitted back into the hospital for some hydration and blue light therapy!
It is now Tuesday evening and his counts are down around 11.6 so they are going to reduce the IV flow and keep him under one light instead of 2 to see how he responds. Dr. Scherer says he is progressing very nicely so we will probably be able to go home sometime tomorrow. Praise God!
What an adventurous week at the Axe home!
Thanks for all your continued prayers and kind words. Vonda and I really appreciate each of your friendships and your encouragement.
