Second Opinions

So yesterday was pretty stressful. I won't go into great detail, but we are basically tired of getting orders from our doctor through nurses and asked for him to call and speak with us since he wouldn't see Kam yesterday and hasn't seen him since the day after he was born. Two nurses called me back instead. We decided to use a pediatician in Louisiana that Kaleb's family has used for years who is awesome. We had quite a bit of drama from our doctor's office about returning the stupid Bili Blanket, and I am now on a mission to make sure no one I talk to ever uses Beaumont Pediatric Center!

Today was a new day. A beautiful day. It was the first day since Kam came home last Wednesday that we didn't have to get up and be at a doctor's office/lab/hospital at 8 a.m. We had an appointment with our new pediatrician at 1:40 in Sulphur, exactly one hour away. We were excited to get a second opinion on his jaundice. Kam slept the whole way there:

And back:

Here's one time he woke up:

Sweet boy!! The new pediatrician was AMAZING. He said Kamden looks great! He actually LOOKED at him, didn't prick his heel to get a level, used his eyeballs to look at his coloring. He said it looked fine, yes he has jaundice, but it'll clear up in about 3 weeks. He said with his weight gain that we are doing a great job with breastfeeding and that we didn't need to supplement anything at all. He wants to see us again in a month, and he told us to call him if we needed anything at all. What?? Call him?? Wow. We are praising God that we have found a doctor who cares about our baby boy and not how much money he can squeeze out of us.

Because my family expects daily pictures of our boy and I missed yesterday, I'm doubling up today. Here's how I get to spend my evenings with my two favorite men!

And lastly, check out this smile!!

SO glad that you got it figured out! We had a similar situation when Preston was born & I know how aggrivating it can be! Kam is SO precious :) Hope you're doing well!
