First thing in the morning we went for Cailyn's 48 post discharge appointment with Dr Sanjay Tandon . He did a good check on her jaundice and said she has minimal to no jaundice YAY!!! He also asked us if we had any concerns or basic baby care questions. We asked about the discolouration her eye lids and he said a few weeks to a month this will be gone. Also, he showed us how to take care of her long nails without clippers or files - simply using our own fingernails...very cool! Her pulse and heart are great, and capillary flow is at 3 seconds which is perfect! It was so great to visit him and have him spend time with us on a physician level and also on a more relaxed friendly level. He had us cracking up talking about how stupid parents can be, and he basically said "if they choose not to listen to his diagnosis and advice then they can go to hell". A real down to earth doctor, very enjoyable experience with him! He also got her lab results and reviewed them with us, so, thyroid is good, CBC good, etc... We were also given Cailyn's blood type and told she does not have a heart murmur. Just an all around good news story for our girl! The visit with the doctor is very affordable at 1000INR (about $22.00).
Here is our girl today, all jaundice free!
