Isn't this fun, me having only "normal" kid stuff to update?
Saturday when I deaccessed (ttok the needle out) Alex's port we had planned to go swimming. He can't get wet when his port is accessed so it is a real treat. Well, it poured rain ALL day. We decided to leave him deaccessed and swim on Sunday. So I woke up Sunday all set for a pool day to find that the high was only 70. Not exactly pool weather. I knew Alex would be upset so I had to be on my toes. I knew the dogs needed baths so i told Alex he could play in the hose. Well, boy did he make the best of it. I don't remember the last time he was so happy. You would have though I gave him the world. He had a ball. So it worked out well.
Yesterday was our last day of horseback riding until the fall. Alex was sad to say goodbye to Pocket and Traci, but he did a great job and got to trot.
Because I chose to leave Alex deaccessed Saturday night I wasn't able to replace fluids that night as I usually do. It was apparent he was on the dehydrated side when we got our labs yesterday. Not a big deal, nothing that a little extra fluid last night couldn't take care of. His triglycerides are once again high. Not really sure what that is all about, but I will address it next week during our appointments.
Dr. Koenig is concerned about his bruising. We aren't really sure what is causing it. We have some thoughts, but Dr. Koenig is thinking about it.
I think that is all for now.
