Today Asher had a doctor's appointment at the Children's Hospital in Pittsburgh. This appointment was for his jaundice. He had breast milk jaundice which got better by not nursing him for a little while (12 days to be exact). The jaundice has never fully gone away. The specialist that we saw today thinks that Asher has Gilbert's disease (pronounced 'zheel-BAYR'). They needed to do a few more blood tests to confirm. Today they took the blood from his arm. Sad! They usually take it from his heel. The good part about taking it from his arm is that it was faster and they didn't have to do any squeezing. Plus the lady taking the blood called me Ma and gave Asher a camo band-aide. Anyway, there is no treatment for this disease but the only symptom of this disease is a yellow tent to the skin when you get stressed. The Children's Hospital is new and nice. The waiting room is huge. I have been in and out of so many waiting rooms in the past year. There is really a lot to be learned in a waiting room.
Well, we are still getting moved into the new house. We really love it so far. There' s lots more room for Noah to play, the kitchen is bigger, the dishwasher has a sanitize button, there are ceiling fans in the bedrooms and there's a cardinal that comes and sits on the rail of the deck throughout the day. It does have a certain smell we are trying to get rid of. Our table sits by the back sliding glass door that looks out to the wooded area behind our house. Last night I had to institute a 'no binoculars at the dinner table' rule. We'll see how long that lasts.
and this is the house. Yes, it has a pink door. I'm thinking of painting it red. Pictures of the inside (for my mother mostly) coming soon.
