Jaundice down finally

This morning, Josiah had his 3rd visit to the Klinik Kesihatan at 14 days old to do a blood test. Previously, the bilirubin level was 10.8 on the first test, and then 11.3 on the 2nd test. The doctor then asked me to cut off all intake of herbs, especially Chinese herbs, and only breastfeed at least 1-2 hours after meals, since there are ginger in the meals. However, I don’t take the ginger directly, the doctor at Kajang hospital said if fried with vegetables and meat, it is still ok, just don’t eat them directly. So, today, if the level has not dropped, meaning above 10, Josiah might need to be readmitted to Kajang Hospital. So I prayed so hard for the last few days. Then John laid hands on Josiah and prayed again while at the Klinik.

Then we got the results and praise God it has gone down to 9.2! Even the doctor was so happy when she saw the results. She didn’t want to have to refer him back to the hospital again, how torturous that would be for both of us. So, I just want to say that prayer really changes things. I am continuing with my meals without the herbs and maybe only resume at my final days before confinement is over. There is only 4 packets of those herbal soups left. I didn’t drink a sip of whatsoever wine so far, am glad I don’t need to.
