Let There Be Light

Ray went to the hospital to visit our little man after work today because unfortunately Eóghan still isn't able to come home. He's jaundiced and needs photo therapy.
Katie and Ray said Eóghan was mad, he did not like being on his stomach, and he did not like having the goggles on or having his head wrapped, but as soon as the light was switched on, he stopped crying, and he settled down for a nice nap:

Don't get too comfortable there.
Hurry Home, Little Man!
You have a host of friends and family anxiously awaiting your homecoming!


  1. Warm snuggly hugs to Eóghan....As you wait to go home, little one, know that you are bathed not only in this healing soothing blue light, but you are also bathed in our prayers. Sweet dreams....

  2. Hi Eileen, I'm sorry that it took me awhile to get here. I have been reading your posts and praying for Eoghan. He just looks so adorable. I hope he will be able to come home soon. I can imagine that everyone is pretty anxious by now!
    I did have a little giggle when I read "Photo Therapy". Katie was jaundiced too when we brought her home. The doctor told us to take her clothes off and set her bassinet next to a sunny window a few times a day! I remember thinking, "What is she, a plant!". Well at least it worked.
    I will be praying for you all Eileen. Love Di ♥

  3. My little grandson didn't like the lights either. I wonder if they will send him home with a light box like they did with baby Grant?

    I just learned something about these lights for jaundice babies. Did you know decades ago they didn't cover the baby's eyes and many became blind? My sister's college professor was blind because of this. I can't understand why it took them so long to figure out they needed to keep the baby's eyes covered!

  4. EILEEN - oh my, offering him up to God's grace and power. Prayers abound
    Love Gail
