An "ah ha" moment

This morning we discovered the probable cause for the recent sleep deprivation - 2 new teeth on the left side of his mouth. (That means a new total of 8 teeth.) It is comforting to know that this is a normal kid thing and not a new manifestation of his Leigh Syndrome. Whew!  Hopefully we can get through this quickly and start getting sleep again. Plus we can get out the teething remedies and hopefully they will help. Currently we are doing teething tablets and Tylenol and an occasional cool washcloth. :-)

Can he chew on cool teething rings? Good to know about the new teeth!

Ever since they started doing endoscopies, it is very hard to get Timmy to put anything near his mouth. Even the teething tablets and the orajel are a challenge. He only sometimes will let me brush his teeth with the finger toothbrush. Grr! We will be working on that. Plus, these new teeth are way in the back of his mouth so it would be hard to get a teething ring back that far.
