: : : My little one got his first lower tooth 2 days ago, and now the second one has appeared. He is drooling excessively and seems to be uncomfortable and cranky. Have I heard on this board that Orajel doesn't do much? Before I buy all the teething products in the pharmacy, I'd appreciate any input.

: : : Needless to mention that he is very irritable and does not want to do anything but cling to me!

: : Hi there!

: : That's great that your baby's teeth are coming in, but poor baby because he is in pain. The only thing that ever worked for my babies was Infant's Advil and plenty of chew toys, and I tried everything including the over the counter teething tablets.

: : I hope your baby feels better. Well, I'll talk to you later. My husband and I are leaving on a 4-day church retreat tonight.

: : Take care.

: Hi Elizabeth,

: Thanks for the advice. I thought that you and your husband were separated. It is great if you are getting back together again. I wish you good luck. Enjoy your trip.

Hi Marie,

Thank you. I will be leaving on the retreat tomorrow afternoon instead. I wanted to say that I am completely shocked with the way my husband has changed. We were separated but he proved to me that he has found God in his life. We went on a 2-day retreat last weekend and he seems like another person. He even says he would like to become a pastor some day. Now we are going on this 4-day retreat tomorrow. He has been living at home for about 3 weeks now and he has been so wonderful. I hope he continues that way. Some people think I shouldn't have forgave him and that they don't think a person could change, but at least I feel good knowing that I gave him that chance to find God and change. If he shows me he doesn't, then I will leave for good, but at least I feel good knowing that I am giving him that chance. Sorry if I sound like I'm preaching. I know not everyone believes in God, but I feel if God forgave, I could forgive him.
