I essentially have no immune system of my own. It will require me to get infusions of immunoglobulins from other people's blood plasma. I will need these every other week for the rest of my life (at least at this point there is no long term solution or cure). I start my first infusion Monday. There can be anywhere from some serious to more mild side effects from the infusions and potentially none. Little nervous about that so any spare prayers you can send my way I will take!
    My wife and I had quads 2.5 years ago and already had a 18 month year old. Take help when you can get it. If you can swing it. A night nanny a few nights a week. It’s a lot of work but fun as well. Each phase gets a little easier. Feel free to DM me of you wanna talk. Hope you are feeling ok, a lot going on. Best wishes.

    Congrats! We have twin girls, both graduated from college in the last week. It has been an awesome experience, not without some challenges along the way but I would not change anything. The only downside, is that it went far too fast.
    Best of look to you, enjoy it!

    Quads! Wow! God bless you. Yes we have been able to swing a night nanny a couple times a week. It is the best. She takes care of them all on their own the whole night. Uninterrupted sleep is amazing. Haha.

    Thanks for the advice and the well wishes!

    Congrats, D to you, your rock star wife and your first born, who will now be able to do whatever since your attention will be spread amongst three new babies. I don't see anywhere where you said the gender distribution. Maybe you don't want to, and that's fine. But, if it's just that you hadn't yet, I think we'd all be interested in knowing.

    I pray for your health, based on what you've written about it, your wife and each of your children's health. May you all be blessed with many happy, healthy years, even if the next 5-7 of them will be crazy-hectic. Create good memories!

    Wow D that's quite a bit to deal with! Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Have faith. Do what you have to do and everything will be fine. Enjoy those little ones 'cause they get big fast. I hope you get some rest and even more important to take care of your body. Hopefully there will be a cure for your condition in the future. Hopefully no side effects. Awesome to have 3 brand new Muskie fans on the planet!

    Thank you all.

    The first infusion Monday went well. No major side effects, just slight headache and very fatigued for the next 24 hours. Went better than I expected. The power of prayer!

    Vee- the triplets were two girls and a boy. Our (almost) 3 year old is a boy, so we now have 2 and 2.

    Appreciate you all!
