Another Day, Another Test

Well hell.  Mara’s bili went up just a hair to 12.1, so the Dr. is going to keep her on the one last light.  It breaks my morale to know that we can’t hold our daughter, when we had been so looking forward to it.  The cardiologist is doing another echo cardiogram to check for structural deficiencies in Mara’s heart, but I’m betting he or she won’t find any.  So now we just have to wait once again, which blows huge goats.

– D.



  1. You can get through this. When my nephew was born, there were some complications and it was days before anyone could hold him. It was the hardest thing, because all I wanted to do was sweep him up and protect him from the lights and the machines and all the poke-y needles. It still makes me sad to think of it too much, but he’s a perfectly content almost-three-year-old, none the worse for the wear. It may seem endless at this point, but you’ll have thousands of totally good, totally normal, totally non-drama days with Mara for each one that you spend in the hospital with her now.

  2. You’re right, it totally blows. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you guys to get home soon!
    But, like Donna said–it’s only a day, or a week, or a month. Just think of the days when you want to sell your toddler to the gypsies. Mara will be like that before you know it! 🙂
