Eliza has jaundice

Last night the nurse came in & woke us up to do a forehead test to check her biliruben levels. She tested high, so they took her to the nursery for some blood work.
The lab work came back this morning & she does have jaundice. The neonatologist ordered special uv lights for her & we have to take them home w/ us for 1 or 2 days.
Once we get her in there, she does fine, but she doesn't like the initial idea of laying there. I suspect she's cold b/c she has to be naked & then covered w/ blankets. The lights warm her up pretty quickly.
