So, Ms. Lily has been pretty irritable the last few days. Ken, Tori and I have all had a cold or allergies with in the last two weeks. When I took her for her 6 month well visit; she also had a Labial fusion. So her Dr. wrote a rx for Premarin (Estrogen) Cream to be used twice daily for two weeks. When I took her back she was still partially fused but her Dr. felt that she should be "ok" and advised that I try to apply Vaseline in that area on a regular basis. So, I have been doing that however, here lately just trying to get a diaper on her is like wrestling a alligator. (or what I would imagine it would be like..lol) She is SO busy and on the move that she really has better things to do. :D Yesterday I noticed that she appeared to be completely fused again! :( I still have the huge tube of Premarin cream so, I started her back on it last night. I decided to make her a "sick visit" today as well. I wanted to make sure that she wasn't fussy due to ears, or urinary symptoms. I am pretty confident that she is not showing "hydro" symptoms.
Today she was 17 lbs and 1 oz. If I had to guess I'd say that she is 30 inches or more! (We will find out on the 29th) She is SOOOO long. Her clothes slide off if she is not wearing a cloth diaper! She is long and LEAN. Anyway, Her ears are fine and she is fused again. But, the Dr was pretty confident that her symptoms are not urinary. She did instruct me to start the Premarin cream again (I told her that I already had) for the next two weeks. If she is not better when we go back for her 9 month check up on the 29th she is going to refer us to a urologist. :/ Soooooo..... She is pretty confident that the cause of her fussiness and pain is...... TEETH. Poor baby!
Her Dr. (we try and see the same one) was once again blown away by her. She said that she is so smart! She said that everything she is doing is amazing and that she really is advanced. She see's "normal" babies that are not as active or curious as she is. :D
