I wanted to come on and update, but I don't have much news! Of course, it is always a good thing when I have no news. So let's see...
Thurs​day was my birthday and we had a nice day. We spent some time as a family and the boys took me out to dinner.

Friday was therapy day. After some thought and discussion. Liz and I both agree that Alex really needs two days a week of therapy. He has so many different areas that need attention and Liz just can't possibly accomplish everything in one hour a week. So starting September 1st we will go to 2x/week.

The weekend was also quiet. This morning we went to the duck pond to feed the ducks. The ducks weren't interested in our bread, but the turtles and the fish were fighting over it!!!

Thursd​ay, when Alex woke up he begged me to start school. I was happy to oblige. Alex is LOVING our new curriculum. he is so happy to be immersed in the world of animals and have that be his "work". He even surprised himself. One of the books we are reading is a chapter book with very limited pictures. He was complaining when I first pulled it out that he didn't like books without pictures. Well we started reading and lo and behold he loves it. We are actually 20 pages ahead of where we should be in that book because he never wants me to stop reading it! So we are off to a great start!

The only negative of the last few days is medical and self induced! As I mentioned in our last post there is some disagreemen​t between the doctors about Alex's replacement fluids. Everyone agreed to let Alex's body make the decision. It was decided we would hold fluids for 2 days and then run labs and urine and see what it shows. So Alex got no IV fluids last night and will not get any again tonight. We will run labs tomorrow morning. We know Alex is pretty dehydrated because he has hardly peed at all today. He is a little cranky which is to be expected. Hopefully, we will get answers tomorrow and put this issue to rest.

I will update tomorrow once labs come back. Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
