Shelby is almost two weeks old and doing great! Just to update everyone, when she was 4 days old the doctor had her put on phototherapy due to the high count of bilirubin in her blood. She had to be on them 24/7 for 5 days. She tolerated them so well too. Much better than I did... It was hard for me not to be able to snuggle with her whenever I wanted. Every day we went back to the hospital for another test and every day her numbers kept dropping. Over the weekend the doctor said she was doing well enough that she could come off the lights for good. Yeah!! I have hardly put her down since. We are so thankful that she is healthy! She is such a sweet baby and we love having her in our family!
