Samuel failed his bilirubin test again today, although his levels had gone down from 16 to 13.5, they want him to remain on the phototherapy lights for another day. I cried when they told me this. The thought of him going through another bilirubin test was more than I could take, not to mention the fact that I am skating on thin ice with sleep deprivation. With these appointments, I haven't been able to sleep at all during the day, so it has been difficult.

This afternoon, we went to the lactation clinic and received some helpful suggestions for breastfeeding. By the time we got home, it was about 5pm, and we had been gone most of the day between the bilirubin test and the lactation clinic visit. Landon and I stopped at Pizzacato for pizza & salad to-go, came home & ate, then fell into an exhausted sleep for a couple of hours until Samuel's next feeding.
