So here we go again... it's one thing or another.... we are spending the night in the hospital at Wolfson's Childrens hospital.  i became concerned today when Alex had to pee and it was the color of sweet tea!!!  WHAT THE FRENCH TOAST?!  We have been here since 5pm and they have given him 1 and 1/2 liters of fluid... taken blood only to stick him about 8 times because his veins are hard to find from being dehydrated.  The second set of blood work came back with his sodium still high .....so better to be safe than sorry and keep him overnight to watch.  He is still in witty spirits....  told them to bring the girls in bikini's with grapes to feed him, lol!  He is a jokester and has been all day even thru this.  I have pics from today's testing to share.... he was definitely a trip there as well.  Closing for now....will write tomorrow when we get home or if he goes to sleep tonight at a decent hour I will write from the hospital.

Until then... Please pray for my handsome boy that all works out and we go home tomorrow!  I am kinda sick of hospitals... ya think?! lol  Atleast this is a change of scenery... heck we have been at Shands, Memorial now Wolfson... let's see... should we go for Mayo Clinic next? lol  I will be a connoisseur on hospitals and could maybe do a write up of all the pro's and con's on each one ha!

Anywho...  we are getting ready to go to our room from the ER so I need to close... stay tuned for updates!
