Ahhh... It is SO good to be on this side of things! I have left updates up to Jake, and he's done well considering it was his first "behind- the-scenes" blog exposure! We get wireless in very spotty locations and times here at the hospital... so I am glad we'll be home soon for this reason- Happy to be hunkered down here for others!

Last night they checked Landon's bili ruben (sp? BR!) numbers and they were slightly high, so they did a blood test to get more accurate numbers. They weren't quite as high, but for that the cause for the jauntice was a blood incompatibility between my blood and his. My O+ was sending out antibodies against his A+ which is trying to be established. Layman's terms for "just another way jauntice can occur." He spent the night under the lights (It's football season- "Friday Night Lights" seemed appropriate!) and his BR #'s are already down, which they weren't expecting yet- so all looks like it will be well.

He's a passionate nurser (ouch), he's sweet as can be and doing great. We're going to hang out here for another day and see what tonight's blood test brings and Lord willing will be able to head home after that.

God is good.
