Fluids

Alex hasn’t been able to keep anything down for almost two days. Every time he takes anything in, even Gatoraid, he’s soon running to the bathroom to, well you know. I’m sure it’s because the Patriots won the superbowl!

Anyway, he’s wasn’t getting any better, so Mom took him to the ER and they gave him an IV to push some fluids. The doctor said it wasn’t the Patriots win, but just the stomach flu.

Pushing Fluids

Alex thought the whole experience was pretty cool, and he likes to tell the story.

SuperMom

I’m in Jacksonville, Florida, on business this week, and as I deplane, I get a text message from Cindy that said she was at the ER with Alex, who had spiked a 103.5º temperature. Cindy and Alex have been battling this fever for the last 3 or 4 days, and every time he starts to perk up, his fever knocks him back down. They were at the ER for about 3 hours while the doc ran some tests, no flu, but it was likely something viral that’ll just need to run its course. Hopefully, it’ll be over soon. Cindy has hardly gotten any sleep the last couple of days, and has had to care for a sick baby, and his brother! She’s amazing!

I feel terrible that I can’t be there to lend a hand…she sure could use the help, and support. Thankfully, this is our last week apart.
