Took Alex to Dr Vitarbo today and they checked the setting and he is where he is supposed to be.  Apparently when he sleeps the fluid may shift or settle and once he is up and around for awhile it should drain properly which it wasn't as gushy this afternoon as it was yesterday morning.  We just have to monitor it.... she asked him at one point " Does it feel hot sometimes Alex?"... I was thinking... WHAT THE HECK? HOT? LIKE AS IN BURN HOT? Is that dang thing gonna burn up in his head, lol?????  Just something else for me to worry about now ha!  GREAT!

He has been great all day.... no signs of headaches.... just chillaxin on the sofa with his friend Kailee.  She and her mom Lori came over for a visit today and bless Miss Lori's heart.... we got to workin round here and got alot accomplished today.  Kailee and Brooks kept Alex's attention elsewhere while we did laundry, changed sheets, mopping, cleaned bathrooms, closets etc.  THANK YOU LADIES....it's the little things in life that mean the most in times like these!  You two were a huge help today and I really really appreciate it!  My momma thanks you too, hee hee.... she offered too I just didn't want her to have to drive from Fernandina to help me :0)

Mr. Bill Wilson of Builders Care,  http://www.builderscare.org/cms/, is coming out tomorrow to assess the renovation situation tomorrow...YAY!  Thank you, thank you, thank you Jaguars for your generous contribution to Builders Care to help Alex in his recovery!  WE LOVE YA'LL!  Very excited to be making accomodations for Alex in the house so that he can be a little more independent of ME, lol! 

Master Alex is fast asleep so I am going to close for now, I just wanted to update everyone on his doctor visit and the gush!  ALL IS GOOD... THANK YOU GOD!
