Second look

Ben's second look CAT scan came back clear and his blood work is looking great also. He still needs to go every 3 months for awhile to get checked but as of right now he is in remission. They are getting him back into the neurologist in Dartmouth to try and get his feet working a little better then it looks like he will be able to return to work soon! It has been a rough year having him out of work this long. We have never spent so much time together and even though it has been great having him hear to help with the babies we are driving each other a little crazy! Luckily as the babies are getting older it is getting easier to take care of them by myself when I need to.

It is Aubrey's turn to be sick. After two sleepless nights and many tears on her part I brought her to the doctors yesterday and she has an ear infection. Poor baby! She started her antibiotic yesterday and was able to sleep through the night last night.

Matthew had his check up for his helmet yesterday also and the doctor says he is already improving so it looks like he will be free of it in no time. I was worried about him having to wear it as the weather got warmer.

We have been trying many vegetables out this month...peas, green beans, squash, sweet potatoes, and carrots. Next month we will do some fruits, I am thinking they will prefer them to the veggies but we will see. We are also going to try and introduce them to sippy cups with some water during feeding time to see how they do. Right now none of them will hold their own bottle for an entire feeding so I don't know how they will react to the sippy cups.

Saturday will mark them turning 7 months! The older they get the sadder I am that they will be one before we know it. I was looking at pictures of them the other night and could not believe how small they were and how lucky we are to have 4 rather healthy babies that you would never know were preemies.


  1. That is great news about Ben. I hope he continues to stay in remission. Keep growing strong babies!!!

  2. That is great news about Ben. We will continue to pray for you guys.

  3. I am so glad that Ben is in remission! That is wonderful!!
