Our lil glow worm

If it's not one thing it's another.
Yesterday Thomas's bilirubin went from 5.5 to 9 (which isn't too crazy) but since we're in the hospital already the neonatologist decided to hook Thomas up to the Wallaby - or the bili lights. It's a cute sleeve that wraps around his belly and helps to get rid of the extra bilirubin floating around his body. He's Coomb's positive, meaning we have different blood types which doesn't help this matter.
As of this morning (12 hours later) his bilirubin only jumped up 1 point from 9 to 10.4, but it still bought us a set of bili lights to take home until it stops climbing - typically 2-5 days.
I'm curious to see lil Henry's reaction to both him being home and the really cool lights this lil one is sporting.
