One more night, hopefully

The home health nurse came to draw Will's blood early this morning. They called aroun one to tell us his level is down to 9.2 now. On Saturday, they told us they were looking for less than 10 before turning off the phototherapy. Because it is just barely below 10, we have to keep him under the lights for another day. I am really hoping that this is the last night for this as Will HATES being in the phototherapy bed because he has to be naked and can not be swaddled. Last night he didn't go down until 4am--I was in there trying with him for four hours! Exhausting! We go to the pediatrician tomorrow for our level check and--cross your fingers--I am hoping they will tell us we are done!
