Ava goes to the Doctor...x 3

The last week has been full of doctor visits for little Ava. The first visit was to check on her weight and jaundice. She was still yellow like a daisy, so we had to get her a blood test, which told us she was worse than when she left the hospital. We were told to continue to feed her often and put her in the sun. Then, we had a follow up appointment the next day where we found out she lost more weight and had to get another blood test, because she was still looking like a daisy. She doesn't like the blood tests.

Then, come the weekend, we thought we all were doing well. Ava was eating well, seemed to be less yellow and more pink and Jill was up and walking all over the place....

Then came Monday. Ava got an eyelash in her eye in the morning and in the afternoon it turned into a yellowish-green mess of goo that was preventing her from being as cute as she normally is. We called the pediatric clininc, as it was after hours and got her an appointment. Luckily, it wasn't an infection and the doctor just wiped it all out and said it was a clogged tear duct. He told us we needed to massage her ducts to get them working right...and one day later, she is back to her normal self.

I am sure this week is only the beginning....I will have to learn to love the doctor's office.
