When our daughter Hanna was born, we were overcome with joy and quickly announced her arrival on Facebook, called family and friends, and even scheduled a family visit to the hospital.
As my husband and I were enjoying our time with two-day-old Hanna, our nurse was performing a routine jaundice screening. Right afterwards, she said that Hanna was jaundiced and had to be sent to the NICU for additional testing. Her liver labs were elevated, and we knew that something was very wrong. The jaundice could not be cured by a light lamp. The doctors planned a liver biopsy, which led to a surgery, which finally led to a diagnosis — Biliary Atresia.
