So, this is my Matty. He has been soooo fussy and having this piercing cry for a week or so now. He has not taken his bottle well either. I thought this was all due to his severe reflux issues, so I made sure I made a follow up appointment with the GI doc at CHOP............WELL, Tom bathed him tonight and noticed two white spots on his bottom gum in his mouth! They look like teeth coming in! They feel a little bumpy. Tom ran to CVS to buy some ambesol. Within 30 seconds of putting the ambesol in his mouth, he got quiet. Now, mind you, much like this picture, before the Ambesol, he was fussy and screaming bloody murder at times............my head was pounding! Instantly, he calmed down. I ran to put some of the teethers in the freezer, and he like them as well! So, he is only 4 months 3 weeks, but I think we may have some teeth coming!!!!
Katie is still in the hospital. Her sodium is down to 146 and doing well. Tom spent the afternoon with her, giving her lots of kisses! Tonight the nurses tell me she is doing great, looks great, and has not had a diarrhea diaper in some time. Yay! She is tolerating her feeds well, so I think she will be home soon...........maybe Sunday or Monday, but we're not for sure yet.
And lastly, I ventured outside the home today! (Thanks to my friend, Sarah!!!!) Sarah convinced me that it is possible to take 3 babies to the mall......................and we did! It was so nice to get out of the house and be among other people! I bought some things and just enjoyed being out of my living room....................The babies did well, they only slept a little, and enjoyed looking at the different surroundings. But, boy, were we a spectacle! Everywhere we went, people came up to us..................and most people were great. Nothing but nice things to say about the babies and me. They were just amazed to see triplets, not realizing we were actually quads!! Imagine all the other people we would have amazed!!! Next time, right, Katie girl?????
