The Good and The Bad

I’m not sure how to write this, or even if I want to write this, but writing this helps me to not think about it…make sense? Yeah, it doesn’t really make sense to me either. My thoughts are all over the place.

If I could magically make March 15th 2010 nonexistent, I would. However, I lived it, we lived it.

I went to the hospital to have William re-weighed and to have another blood test ran to see if his jaundice had gotten any better…

The Good News:

William has gained almost 2 pounds during the past two weeks AND his jaundice has gone down 1.8 points!

The Bad News:

His liver enzymes were high. 684 to be exact- 420 is the highest it should be.

What do we do:

The doc called a specialist to see what the best plan of action should be. She recommended waiting a month- then retest. If the numbers are still high, then we’ll do an ultrasound to see if anything is blocking his liver, gallbladder, etc. THEN, we’ll talk about our options. What? Really? I want more answers than that! They did say, if I go on-line I would freak myself out because of all the possibilities this could be. Lovely.

I’m trying not panic- but not panicking IS making me panic. Can you tell that I’m ALL.OVER.THE.PLACE?
