Good News!!

I have some great news, I have to go back into the hospital on Wednesday. Now, I know that you are wondering why this would be good news - well let me tell you. Yesterday I found out that I have 4 kidney stones in my left kidney (this was no surprise). On Wednesday I get to go in and have them blasted - this means that they will send waves through my skin and break up the stones into little grains of sand, making them much less painful to pass. So, I am very excited to get to go the hospital. I have been waiting my whole pregnancy to be able to finally get my stones taken care of. I will let you know how it all turns out.

An update on Wendy Jane - We went to the doctor on Thursday and they rechecked her biliruben level (biliruben is what causes the jaundice). Her biliruben had risen from 8 to 10 in 24 hours. Although this isn't ideal, it was not a huge concern. We have an appointment with the lab on Monday to recheck her biliruben level and redo her PKU. If both of these come back normal we should be in the clear. If her biliruben has continued to rise we will have to come up with a plan to fix it. Not that I'm a professional, but she looks less orange to me, so I think we are doing OK. We are all looking forward to attending church for Easter tomorrow.
