Jaundice Cate


Cate peeking from behind blanket

I love this picture because Cate looks so little peeking out from behind the blanket. Her bilirubin is pretty high so she has the pleasure of some "photo-therapy" by way of this special bed with the slightly freaky blue light. In a couple of the pictures I've taken her lips look blue! She is doing well though, and despite one extra days stay at the "Hotel Loma Linda" we hope to take her home tomorrow (Wednesday). Sadly, I feel Cate was genetically disadvantaged in this area as both Andrea and I had jaundice – but we both turned out ok, right?

    She is soooooo cute! Alyce was jaundiced too and I just had her spend time every day laying naked in a sunbeam under the christmas tree and drinking water from her baby bottle to help flush her system out and she turned into a pink healthy girl! :)Cate just wanted to be like her cousin thats all!:)
