So, to make a long story short....our cleft team did not need to see us because Reid had no fever, the swollen part was not red or irritated, and did not seem to look like any sort of infection related to the cleft. Ok....so our regular doctor took a good look at him and said the words....ABSCESSED TEETH. My heart dropped and my stomach ached. We knew we would get to this place...but we were hoping not so soon. His 2 top teeth in the cleft have rotted all the way through and have caused infection in the gums causing swelling. Sooooo....he was put on penicillin for 10 days and we are to call our dental team on Monday morning. Looks like we will be heading for Cleveland this week (I assume) and will see what they have to say. Most likely...surgery will be scheduled to take care of these teeth and they will be extracted. The good thing is that he does not seemed bothered by it and is eating and resting and playing as normal. What a trooper he is! Oh, and as a sidenote....our little meatball weighed in at 28 lbs. 12 ozs. today (16 mos. old). Guess he is eating fine! I will post a picture here tomorrow....but keep Reid in thought as we cross yet another bridge. Thanks so much....

Ellie and I made an Easter Tree to have up. It is a refreshing thought to think that Spring is right around the corner....somewhere!

will toilet paper stretch?????
Reid thought he would find out tonight as I was putting laundry into the hamper in Ellie's bedroom...he snuck in the bathroom, threw the shampoo bottle in the toilet, unrolled the toilet paper, and brought it to me, all in a matter of about 40 seconds or less. How nice of him to think of his MaMa, huh? I am in deep trouble with this one folks.......deep trouble!
