I Had No Idea

It's been a hectic first week at home with our Benjamin.  Between the jaundice scares (highest level was over 15mg/dL as of Monday - although thankfully went down to 13.9mg/dL by Tuesday) and weight loss... it's just been...well... hectic.

It's crazy to think that less than a week ago I was getting ready for a shower with some fantastic Racine Theatre Guild friends - school was still in session, I was feeling good, and Georgie's "poops" were "looking up."  Oh how things… Continue reading The Last Week of School
