miette, miette, in the little blue isolette...


this little incubator cube is also called an 'isolette,' which rhymes with our new daughter's name! fun fun.
miette's in the blue because her bilirubin levels were a bit high. she has been in there since around 10AM yesterday, only coming out to eat! she didn't like it at first, but she has decided to change her attitude.
as of around midnight last night, miette's weight was down to 7 pounds 1 ounce. so the doctor felt that with the higher bilirubin levels, that she needed a supplement to breast milk. so she has had about 3 ounces of formula since then.
this morning, her bilirubin levels were down to 9 (from 12), so the nurse thought she would be able to come out today. the doctor is in the nursery now, so we will soon here about her weight and when we get to go home (my doctor said i was fine to go home today, but can stay until miette is ready to go.) i will keep everyone posted :)

**in a few of the pictures you may see that miette's feet look like they are in casts! the bilirubin test involved taking blood from the heel, which is easier to do if the foot is nice and warm... so they put warmers on the feet and wrap them up in diapers! it was pretty funny looking....

That at her little body. So tiny! I hope everything works out great for you guys. They put Ivory in that thing too but it was only for 8 hours. Because I kept taking her out to "feed" her :) I guess that is why she is so chunky now! The girl loves to eat...

Can't wait to meet you, little one! Thanks to mom and dad for the pictures...this is one aunt that's quite bummed that I'll be the last of the "siblings" to meet you! So the pictures ease my disappointment a bit! Love to all four of you!
