I feel brain weary despite an awesome nap (THANK YOU, Mom and Dad Jones and Gail!), so I'll keep this brief.
Bottom line, we don't know what was wrong with Seth. He did not have any signs of respiratory infection, nor were they able to culture anything bacterial or viral. Our initial hypothesis that his tummy was bothering him turned out to be true. He was panting with discomfort, poor kid. With his scarred lungs it manifests a lot more visibly than it would in another kid with normal lungs, hence all the head bobbing and retracting. We still don't know what was/is really wrong with his tummy: he doesn't digest his milk very well despite it being the elemental amino acid formula (which is more digestible than even breast milk if I were to go dairy- and soy-free); his symptoms may have been due to Prevacid overdose after all; we'll probably never know! Just glad to be home. :) I really missed the other kids.
Will rolled over several times today! I think I mentioned David starting rolling a couple of weeks ago. Marcie seems to be getting close, and Seth immediately rolls to his sides when placed on his back. When we force Gracie to do tummy time she just cries. :} David has two teeth, as of last Thursday, and it appears one is coming through in Seth. What?! Isaac didn't get teeth until 6 months! The babies are now 4 months adjusted age.
Okay, that's my baby booking for today. Thanks so much for praying and caring and checking our blog! A few pictures follow.
|I love this little outfit with matching cap. I'll get a picture of Gracie in it too. |
(She was at her helmet appointment.)
