Positive thoughts/prayer request
Published June 23, 2008
Both my sister-in-laws on my husband’s side just had babies within 3 weeks of each other. One of them, the baby just now a month old, had obvious jaundice that the pediatrician wasn’t concerned about and wouldn’t test. When my SIL got frustrated enough to find another pediatrician, it was found that the baby’s bilirubin numbers were high enough that she needed to take her directly to the emergency room. There it was determined that the baby was not responding to photo therapy after an overnight visit. She has now been sent to Seattle’s Children’s Hospital where she has been for a couple of days and her symptoms are now being able to be treated with medication, however they have not yet found the root cause of the jaundice. Luckily they have tested for some of the scarier causes and they have come back negative. The family will be at Children’s for at least a week. I’m asking for prayer/meditation/positive thought requests for baby Phoebe and her parents and two sisters…thanks.
