When the pediatrician visited us at the hospital, he said Ella Jae's Jaundice level was a little high. It was at a 6. He said that we needed to make an appointment to follow up with him again once we came home. When we went to see him, he suggested that we take her to have Billy Ruben test to check her Jaundice levels. It was then a 12, then the next day it was 14. When we went yesterday, it had finally stabilized! Praise the Lord! We don't have to be in fear anymore and she doesn't have to get her little foot stuck and neither one of us have to cry! I do have to say, she was very brave, bless her little heart! When we went to the pediatrician today, he said she did have Jaundice but that it would go away on its own and it was nothing to worry about. I was getting worried because her levels kept going up and they weren't recommending any treatment. Even the whites of her eyes turned yellow and are still a little yellow because of the Jaundice. But thankfully, it is nothing to fear! Thank you, Lord, for hearing and answering our prayers! Ella Jae is our perfect, heaven-sent angel! We love her so much and pray for her health daily among many other things!
