All four still have the snots and coughs, we're just keeping a really close eye on them. Gunner has a sore on his hand from where the IV was, which with the tape, gauze, etc. became his teething ring. We've got to watch that as well to make sure he doesn't continue to break down the skin which could lead to more problems!
Please continue to keep us in your prayers and take a close look at my blog roll to the right, there are A LOT of sick babies, moms and dads right now who need your prayers as well.

The Tubre Quads Update is as follows:
Emma, Tyger and Cullen have double ear infections and RSV. Abbey is clean and clear. The boys are in the hospital with no oxygen but are receiving breathing treatments. All four are on Rocephin shots daily for 3 days.
Gunnery and Avery were admitted on Tuesday night - No RSV, No flu. Gunner is being discharged today. Avery is staying due to bacterial growth in her urine.
Cannon and Lauren are doing better and are getting to hang out at home.
Please keep the Muffins and the Cupcakes in your prayers.

It came without any warning! They went to bed fat and happy last night. When I woke up at 6 I asked Andrea how the night went (it was her night.) She said it was great, but someone coughed a good bit. She said every time she got up to see who it was Cannon was the only one moving so she assumed it was him. I laid in the bed for the next hour or so while they were waking up and I heard a cough, I said, oh, that's Lauren. Then another cough, oh crap, that's Avery. Another cough, Cannon. And then the deepest yuckiest cough, Gunner. I began to get them up for their 8:00 bottle and felt each head (you know, I have a thermometer installed in my cheek and it can automatically tell whether they're running a fever!) all felt fine. They are all sneezing, snotting, coughing yet eating, smiling, interacting. We're going to up Saline, up breathing treatments and see where that takes us. We talked with our Pedi and it seems there is a LOT of the flu going around down here so we're safer not going to the doctor unless we spike a fever! I AGREE! I don't want to load them up, drive 30 minutes, unload them, be told they have a cold and then reload them only for them to gain the flu from a doctor's office! Needless to say, please add us back on your prayer list!!
UPDATE: After posting I read through my blog roll and it sounds like everyone has at least one, if not four sick babies! So, when you add my crew to the bunch, add everyone else's too!! Sending well wishes to everyone!!

Gunner is generally always happy!!
sometimes just to hear himself laugh!!
Lauren is by far the sweetest!!
Avery can go from Happy to SCREAMING in 2.2 seconds!!
Hannah Noelle is the hardest to get to sleep, but once she's out, she's out!! These pictures (which she'll hate when she's older!) were taken after I got her up around 2 am to go potty because I knew she had entirely too much to drink that night and didn't want an accident!! She left the bathroom and said, night, mommy! I went to check the bed, she wasn't there. I started frantically looking and found her asleep on the steps leading up to the bed! How Sweet!!

Thanks for all of your prayers and well wishes. At the doctor today we got good and bad news. Lauren is not doing much better, but Cannon is doing a little better. Both got Rocephin Shots today :( so we're hoping that they feel much better tomorrow! They both lost weight, so we HAVE to have not lost anymore by tomorrow's visit or I'm afraid of where she'll send us. Notice I'm not using the word that starts with h, ends in l and has ospita in the middle of it!! The Good News is Avery's PDA has closed!!! We have four healthy hearts, no surgeries needed!! WHEW!! On top of everything Gunner's tooth is giving him fits! I can only imagine when all four are teething!! Also, we are taking baby steps toward being Apnea Monitor free!! We are using them only during sleeping times now, which is SO much easier! We even went to the doctor today without them on. We're hoping to be monitor free by February 18th, their 6 month birthday, except for maybe Lauren.
Another thanks to everyone that has helped me the last two days with the babies. It takes a small army to get all four (counting HN, five) to the doctor, one for an x-ray, one for an echo, one to dance, etc. etc....
