We got cocky.

What can we say? We thought we were "all that", able to camp and everything like that with newborns. Last night didn't go so well. At all. James finally just up and left the campground completely at 4:30am - nice!! At that point he wasn't so much deserting us as he was planning to just stay awake to get to work on time. Macey and Madelyn were fussy ALL night, never really having a nice stretch of time where they slept well. Their thrush is really awful, especially Madelyn. I have called the dr about it and I think we'll need to move on to something else for them because the Nystatin is not clearing it up and I think they are grouchy because of the thrush.

So no 8 hour stretches, lol. I don't know if we'll spend the night out there or not tonight. I think I'd prefer not to.

The only thrush medication that worked for Nathan was Ginseng Violet. It is messy and looks awful to do, but it cleared it up in 1 day. It can stain clothes too! He used Nystatin for a month and got no relief. Ask your doc about that one. I actually think it is a natural remedy, not prescription.

I know you have your hands FULL, but I need a picture fix! Hope the girls are feeling better soon.

I've had several people mention Gentian Violet. I wonder if I can get it at Wal-Mart...part of my problem with that is that I have nowhere to go to get it!

I got mine at WalMart--it might be behind the pharmacy counter. Just ask a pharmacist if they carry it. :)

funny I thought I was "all that" too taking my newborn to a water park. It proved to be a lot more work than what it was worth. But we still made the most of it and had fun. Hope the thrush goes away soon
