My bag of tricks for parenting, grieving and living.

My darling Ellie has been my anomaly. She stayed in utero longer than all the others. She held her breath when she was born and stayed grey longer than I liked. And she has hair when Lainy Ann did not.
Apparently she still wants to be unique and has decided to hold onto her bilirubin. So here we are on her one-week birthday back in the hospital. Her bilirubin levels are at 19.4, dangerously high for her age. So she gets a tanning bed for the next 2 days and I get a fold out chair.
