Yay, today was the day Theo and I were allowed to go home. She is such a little doll and we are both just so in love. The phototherapy worked well and her jaundice reduced. I woke up this morning determined that 'this was it, time to go home' then watched as the sun came up and revealed our little girl looked yellow again... I couldn't stop the disappointment and tears in my eyes while the midwives reassured me not to worry just yet.
Finally, got her bloods tested and her jaundice level had dropped since yesterday so we were allowed to go - phew!
It is really nice being back. After feeding her I plonked straight into my bed and slept so well. Nelly, our dog, isn't too sure what's happening with Theo. She just wants to constantly lick her toes which is handy when she needs waking up!
