I.'m having some baby widrawl today. my grandson had to be brought back to the hospital and I haven't seen him all day.

When he was born the cord was wrapped around his neck and they had to use a suction device to pull him out fast and the doctor said that he may become jaundice because of it. He was checked yesterday for jaundice and they kept him at the hospital so he could be put under some special lights to get rid of the jaundice.

He's doing much better today as he's less sleepy and is more awake and eating more. We are hoping that inhe might be coming home tomorrow.

I'm sorry for not posting before this but I had to get used to working on a small notebook computer and I kept running into trouble because I couldn't send my comments. I.m learning  something new. it's way slower than working on my own comp   uter. I may be able to post a few pictures tomorrow.I;ll wait for my daughter to be home because I don't want to screw up her computer.

I've read eveyone's comments and want to thank everyone who read my blog and commented with congratulations and well wishes. It would take too long to respond to everyone as I have to share the computer with my daughter and check my 70  emails and answer some of them and I'm sooo slow on this computer. 
 Thanks for your visit. everyone. JB



  1. Hi Julia,
    Happy to see a post from you. Sorry the little guy ended up back in hospital but hopefully he gets home tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing pics of Nanna and baby.

  2. So glad you updated, I have been wondering and thinking about you. So glad you are having a nice time. I will look forward to pictures soon.
    I miss you though. I will pray he gets to come home tomorrow.

  3. So nice to hear from you Julia. So sorry the little guy had to go back but hope he is home soon I can't wait to see more pictures he has such a sweet little face you just want to kiss it.

  4. Good to hear from you! Hope the baby is home soon. I remember the same thing happened to my son, 33years ago!!
    Enjoy your time!

  5. Jaundice is fairly common in newborns Julia and it's great that they are taking care of it right away. The good thing is that it's a pretty easy fix and then he will be OK. The hardest part is waiting to hold him, huh? Unless it's the SLOW computer...I have one at work and that is painful!
    Is it cold there...my guess is YES!
    Thanks for keeping us up on what is happening. Hope baby is home tomorrow...enjoy!!!

  6. Julia,
    My second son had jaundice too and had to go back to the hospital. It's hard not to have baby home and it can tire Mom out going back and forth. Tell your daughter to hang in there...it will only feel like years, but they respond to the light fast and are home again where they belong. All my best to you and your family.

  7. Good to hear from you Julia. Sorry you had to give up the baby for a short while but I know all will be well!

  8. Thanks everyone for your encouraging comments. It's good to be back in touch with such caring friends.
    Welcome to my blog Courteny, it's always nice to see a new face following my blog and thanks for following my blog.
    I hope that all of you are well as I haven't followed your post because I was having difficulties getting used to using this mini computer.I'll try to read your posts today. Stay safe and warm everyone. JB

  9. Enjoy your time with your family, don't worry about answering my comment.
    As someone else said Jaundice is pretty common, and hoping he will be out of the hospital and back in you and your daughters arms soon.

  10. I saw pictures of the cute little bear on Justin's Account.He is his dad's clone.It even looks like he has strawberry red hair.Give him a big hug from his great auntie Del.I Love you Julia.

  11. Julia ~
    Yes, it is good to hear from you. I'm sorry the little guy had to go back to the hospital, but those lights should clear up the jaundice in no time and you can go back to hugging and spoiling him with love!
    Hugs :)

  12. Hi Julia, Don't worry jaundice is common in babys. My daughter had to stay a couple days under the lights as a baby. Hugs to the little sweet baby and grandma and of course Mom who did
    all the work. Cheri

  13. So sorry to hear about the Jaundice but I know that he will be home with you guys soon.
    I am really happy you are there and enjoying yourself.
    Thanks for taking the time to write me words of encouragement while your away. How sweet of you. I really appreciate it

  14. Julia...you are right...the more blogs that follow you, the more time it takes to follow them. So, I just comment anymore on the ones I really like....like YOURS!!! (My mother used to say, "the more you have, the more you have to take care of.")

  15. Oh Julia! I'm so happy for you and your family. Looking forward to many wonderful shots of the precious new family member!

  16. Julia, my first delivery Matthew also had the cord wrapped around neck and he had to be suctioned to come out, he had a big hematoma (lump) on the back of his mishapen head but it went down eventually. he is 34 years old. I spent alot of time in hospital and almost lost him in the first trimester.
    On another note, I love the progress on your rug, the tree is great.
    hope things continue to go well. joanne, charlotte nc

  17. Joanne, I'm so glad that things turned up fine with you and your son. Babies grows so fast, it's nice to see them doing well especially when there some unexpected turns. Thanks for your comment. JB
