The lab results came back

Well, it seems like Josef’s red blood cells are breaking down faster than they should. We have an appointment with a hematologist/oncologist tomorrow morning. He still has mild jaundice still so we are still hoping it is the breast milk that is causing this. Which leads me to think that we don't know much about jaundice.
All results were borderline...
I don't know, it just seems like all this information leads to... what?
I have not an idea.
I figured out I do not mind most doctors whose specialty ends with "cian" as pediatrician or obstetrician... it is those "ists" that get me nervous, and especially when attached to the letters "onco".
Parenting is so hard. I knew it would be hard, I just had no idea how emotionally beat up one can get from things like this.

Oh dear. I'll be praying about him. "Ists" are scary. :(

I always wondered about the difference between "-ician" and "ist"! Seriously though, I'll be praying that everything turns out for y'all. ((hugs))
