So I needed to take him in again this morning, mostly just for Dr. McKitterick to check up on his jaundice. He gained an ounce since Friday! Woohoo! So now we're up to 7lbs13oz. She also was very pleased at how well he's "pinking up." It made me feel good because I wasn't sure if he really was losing the yellow or if I was just hallucinating. She said that I'm not imagining it, he really does look better.
So we got his blood drawn again, but I haven't heard back yet about the actual number. Dr. McKitterick said that she'll definitely want to see him towards the end of this week for another blood draw regardless, but she's confident that will be the last one.
So yay! Hopefully I'll soon have a normal pink baby!
edited to add: I just got a call. His number is 13.6! YAY! So she doesn't want to see me again, she'll just fax the order for the blood draw to the lab for Friday. WOOHOO!
Next week the microwave and then…
