RACHEL'S PAGE!

The following links lead to webpages containing digital photos of Rachel. Some of the files are a bit large, so the page might take a little time to download, depending upon your connection speed. Let me know if you would like us to send you the pictures in some other way (e.g., via email or snail mail). Also, please note that you can view a larger version of each picture by clicking on the thumbnail.

NOTE: Bilirubin is the stuff at the root of jaundice. Readings of 20 or above are troublesome, but once it peaks (like Rachel's did on 2/16 or so), it will never again increase. We worried a little about her bili numbers, but she never needed the treatment (tanning under "bili lights" for several hours).
