2/3 are

now home. Jill was doing better when we left, and her liver was functioning better. Her enzymes were in the 470s, where normal is 20-30 for one number, and the other was 300 something, where the normal is 20ish also all on Monday. Today at 11am, the first was down to 300 and change, and the second was down to 160, so definite improvement.

And she took 40cc of food from us before we left, which keeps her gradual increase going, so that is good. She may avoid IV. We'll see.

The pediatric neurologist will be by this evening, so hopefully he confirms what the neonatal doc thinks, or better.

hey, if you need a sitter at the hospital (as in one who will sit with jillian, call us) although, will they let a nonfamily member in? or we can watch henry if marcia is needed in other capacities. my offer is serious.
