So, here I am, with Younger Bro. He's under the lights, next to the lights, and lying on the lights - they've upped the lumens for this round of treatment. I know the potential effects of too-high bilirubins is bad, but this just sucks.
Biggest problem? When he's screaming, I can't pick him up and hold him. That's not a good thing, because it's hard to comfort a screaming baby without picking him up. Younger Bro has this high-pitched screech that The Boy never developed, and it's really quite... motivating.
He'll likely be fed under the lights as much as possible. I'm not sure how long he's going to be there, and I'm not entirely sure what plan B would be.
Tough week for all of us. Not going to get easier. Thank G-d Grandma is here.
