A small update, in the right direction.
I spoke w/Robbie's day nurse a few minutes ago.
His repeat CBC was about the same. From what she says, it's very, very slightly off. She said if he hadn't exhibited other signs (namely the blood sugar) they wouldn't have treated him at all. And the signs he has could actually be cold stress and he got QUITE cold during Kangaroo care.
She said he's alert, active and happy this morning so that whatever is going on hasn't affected him too much, so that's a good sign.
All his other bloodwork from the morning looked good as well.
So right now we're hoping it was cold stress and is resolving on its own.
We do know that we will have to be super careful about holding him for a while- probably not doing it at all. I did a bit of reading in my panic this morning and there seems to be mostly positive opinions that even just touching him in good ways can benefit him as well.. so I will probably just opt to keep my hands on him as much as possible. It's not as good and skin to skin care, but it's something. And keeping his warm is the bigger priority right now.
