Back in the hospital

We were not happy when we took Burke in to see Dr. Martin and she told us we had to go back to the hospital. I will be honest. I totally had a melt down in the doctors office. I didn't want to take my baby back to the hospital. We had been home for 2 days and were getting settled in with our new bundle of joy. I have been very emotional with Mamie's birthday right around the corner plus just the hormones alone. We headed home and got packed up. When we walked into our room at the hospital I was totally relieved to see his little tanning bed was right next to my bed. They had told us that he would be in the nursery and they would bring him to me to nurse. Before long he was snoozing under the lights and Taylor and I were trying to get some rest. He loved the warmth of this little tanning bed. We got some pretty good laughs out of it all. The night was long. They had me nursing then pumping so I did not get much sleep. We were thrilled the next afternoon when they came and told us that his billirubin was down from a 17 to an 8 and we could go home. YEA!

Choroid plexus cysts are not tumors or cancer, and they will disappear on their own usually between 24 to 26 weeks of pregnancy. Choroid plexus cysts, in and of themselves, are NOT a problem and do not interfere with brain function.They are seen in about 1% (1/100) of all second trimester ultrasounds. Choroid plexus cysts may be seen in one or both sides of the brain and the number, size…

Customized Plates

We have had many mom's contacting us wanting a plate made for their precious baby. We are excited to say this can be done. All we need is a copy of the foot prints. We are so excited that we can offer this. To purchase a custom plate you will need to click on the custom plate tab on the right hand side. You can choose and extras that would like to painted on your plate. If you decide to just have your prints transferred you will still get to choose a color for the rim of the plate. Please feel free to send us an email if you have any questions at all.
Thanks, Sarah
