I forgot to mention Aidyn's lab results. His total bilirubin is 7.9 and the direct is 4.9! Just 2.9 more points down to go for the direct bilirubin! Aidyn's red blood count is up, meaning he's making new red blood cells. He's absorbing his iron supplement well, so his iron level is great. All other areas are also good. We tested his thyroid since his newborn screening in AZ resulted in abnormal results. His thyroid levels tested normal. We're hoping Aidyn's direct bilirubin will reduce to 2 in the next couple of weeks. Aidyn's skin and eyes are looking better each day. His behavior is that of a typical baby as well. All good things.
