AB vs. O

Well, crap.

Turns out the reason the twins ended up under bili lights wasn't just 'cause they were preemies. They were also the product of incompatible parents. HAha! Okay- so even though Zach and I get along fine, our blood doesn't mix so well. Kael tested Coombs positive. He's got hemolytic anemia, which basically means my body fought against his, and now he's got antibodies against himself, courtesy Mom.
"Why, Mom? Why?"

Which means.... the WALLABY! And also.... SUPPLEMENTING WITH FORMULA!!!! Grr.

Oh well. On the spectrum of crap you can go through with having kids, I've always been at the easy end, so I'm not complaining. And it gives family a rare (hopefully rare, anyway) chance to help feed baby. :)


Ya' like Anya's shirt? Ahhh, the irony.

Well that is the cutest little glowworm I ever did see!

Megs said...

Not many kids have pictures of them glowing. You could tease him when he's older and say he's an alien baby. ;p but I like breezis comment best. He's a glow worm!! We need to find one of those plush glow worms and take a picture of them next to each other. :)

Yeah, the girls are totally going to show him that picture and tell him he arrived in a space ship from another planet. They have proof! It's kind of like the "you don't look like the rest of us. you were adopted" sibling harassment, but even further!

Oh good. I was wondering how he was doing but was too dumb to ask you when I actually TALKED to you today. Well, good in that you're not in the hospital with him. That would be crappy.

What a cute little guy.

Michelle said...

I agree with Breezi! He is so cute! And it is a good thing that you can do all of this from home and not in the hospital!Here is to hoping everything gets better quickly! We will keep you guys in our prayers!

Sheesh Mom!!! I'm glad that he's okay and home with you. I hope he will keep getting better. I don't know anything about it.

He sure is cute with his little glowing wrap on. You would have thought they might have caught this stuff after the first or second pregnancy and not waiting until your third child was having problems to find it. Hope all goes well!

Oh he is a cutie. So are the girls. I love those french braids. It is nice to think about the girls getting to bond with their baby b. Hope your back is doing okay.
