Happy Birthday Anna Claire!
She is doing wonderfully and at the last check-in her bilirubin is down (YEAH!) which means she will be able to come out from under the lights soon. We were given the news that she has moved to the "step down program" which essentially means they are preparing us to bring her home soon. She could still be there for another week but she is progressing well and is still working on those poopies!
Once we know when she will be coming home, we will have the chance to spend the night with her in a room off of the NICU. This gives the parents the opportunity to "room in" with the baby and still have the nurses there if there are any questions or needs that might arise.
