Sorry for all those of you following at home; we did not mean for the delay in updates to be so long. Our hope was that we would get two good blood tests and be out of the woods. Avery's jaundice counts have come down; last night by over 4pts but today only showed her down another .8 of a pt. We were hoping for single digits and to be done with the light setup today. With the new test we have to put both lights back on her and again keep a close eye on what is happening. Needless to say this is hard on us both; Monica is prone to spontaneous tears but we are managing. I'm sure some of you grizzly vets out there may be laughing at us but as first time parents every little bump feels like a coasters first big drop. For these reasons we have been very busy today and have put off some of the updates we promised. Once things return to normal we'll be back up and running with our planned posts. Hope everyone is well; we greatly appreciate all the prayers and thoughts.
PS For those of you keeping tabs on the tie downs for Monica; she did hit a wall yesterday afternoon and got some good sleep over the last 24 hours. Beyond the emotional roller coaster she is doing great, let's just hope Avery gets better soon so Momma will stop worrying.
