Sam had another good drop in his direct bilirubin this week from 5.8 to 4.6. Another big number and very good news.
Mom is still pretty sad though, she had her heart set on an even bigger drop and a vision of coming home next week. Looks like she will be stuck in Boston for about two more weeks or so. I am sure that today being Ryan's birthday didn't help her sadness any. We were prepared for the fact that we may be there for 3 to 12 weeks, but sometimes our optimism gets the best of us and we set our hopes a little high. I will just be happy that we will all be together for the upcoming Holiday season. It is right around the corner, there are only like 30 more days until the stores start putting up Christmas decorations at the beginning of October, after all.
