Well, Reagan's definitely teething! It's funny, we waited so long for the first two teeth and she's already getting more...I guess she's on a roll now. She has been so fussy all day long today. Her upper gums are very red and you can just tell she doesn't feel well. I guess she gets the whiny gene from me. I've been pumping her full of tylenol all day today trying to prevent a fever and ease the pain (it's actually an acetaminophen suppository, gross I know, because she can't take regular liquid tylenol because of the carbs). On a positive note, she has been drinking her bottles no problem...the Ketocal is best served cold, so I think she finds the coldness soothing on her sore gums (although she won't touch a teething ring). On average I would say she has had less seizures today than yesterday, but she's had two today that were possibly small tonic seizures. It's hard to say because every time she's had a tonic one previously, they've lasted at least a minute or so in duration and there was really no question what they were. These two today were only a few seconds long, but had the same constant trembling characteristic of the longer ones (followed by some small jerks). I don't know. I don't like it. Monday can't come soon enough for me.
