I'll bet some of you who check my blog daily have been wondering what happened to me. This past Tuesday Oakley was taken by ambulance to Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital in St Louis to be treated for a high jaundice count, 23.5. He was put under the blue lights and given IV fluids to help his little body to process the excess bilirubin.
He has made a swift recovery with no adverse effects. We returned home today with apts for follow-up blood tests and doctor appointment on Monday. We have to be extra careful for the next several days to make sure his fluid intake is ample so he can continue to keep his levels down, but otherwise he is a perfectly normal little fellow.
They really have no explanation for what caused this to happen, but we are just thankful we caught it in time before the count went any higher.
That's all for now. We are all exhausted.
Until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! day!
