I would like to introduce Miss Lillian Lee Brooks.
She was born on Tuesday July 27, 2010 at 8 lbs 5 oz 23” long 2:31 p.m.
We brought her home Thursday the 29th
We had to stay an extra day in the hospital because she had a high Bilirubin score meaning she had Jaundice. Therefore, Cooks home health brought to our home a Biliblanket for her to lay on for three days. This photo therapy treatment helped lower her bilirubin score. It is wonderful to have such technology to help our little one get better.
Cole and I survived her first bath.
Lillian Loves to watch the rangers with her Dad
The Saturday before we celebrated turning 3 weeks old, Lillian began to run a temperature. Cole and I quickly gathered the bare minimum and took her to Cooks Children’s in Downtown Fort Worth. We spent 6 hours in the most efficient ER I have ever experienced. Lillian was admitted for at least 48 hours to rule out many diseases and infections such as meningitis. Fortunately they found the source of her temperature quickly and we made Cooks our home for 6 days to recover from a severe UTI and double kidney infection.
Enough of the sad stuff, we celebrated 1 month of life in style!! I think Cole and I enjoyed it more than she did.
Are you ready for some football? Little Lillian is...
