Stats and a Few Pictures

  
My parents have been in town since Friday evening. They were sooo helpful, with both chores around the house and with the baby this week!  They left after lunch today, but they'll be back on Saturday to sit with Jack when the five of us attend a wedding that evening.

Now for a few Jack stats, mostly for my memory, haha.

Jack weighed 6 lbs. 2 oz. at birth.
The day before we left the hospital, Jack-Jack weighed 5 lbs. and 14 oz
This past Monday, my parents, Jack, and and I went to Jack's first pediatrician appointment. He weighed 6 lbs. 6.5 oz!  In just four days, he gained 8 oz!  While there, they did a blood test to check his Bilirubin levels. In the hospital, he was a bit jaundiced.  Unfortunately, the levels came back a bit high--14.6. So, we had to go back the next day to have them tested again.  If they were higher, we'd have to check them again the next day. If not, we'd be able to wait to check them at his 2-week appointment. 
My dad and I took big Jack back on Tuesday, and this time he weighed 6 lbs. 7.5 oz!  They tested his levels (which is a miserable blood draw from the heel).  It was 13.7! Yay!
   

The Holter monitor results weren't conclusive (a benign rhythm seemed to be present), so we will go back to see the pediatric cardiologist in three weeks.  Please pray that he decides not to do another Holter monitor and that everything looks much better!
