You have to drink, boy!

Sleeping while fluids go in...
Grayson has had the crud again and the poor little boy has no reserve.  He got over the sickness (the horrid "throw ups" that keep going around and around the schools), but he got terribly dehydrated in the process and we couldn't get him hydrated.

We ended up in the doctors office, where they stuck him 6 - yes 6 - times to try and get an IV in him.  After several hours and lots of bravery from him, they sent us over to the ER.  My sweet little boy even stopped at the nurses station and said "thank you" to the nurses that stuck him as we left.

Once we got over to the ER we sat in the waiting room for over an hour (even though the Dr called and said we had a dehydrated/lethargic child), then in a back room for another hour before being seen.  All in all it was almost 9 hours away from home all to get the poor little boy a bag of fluids.

Billy Goat (Gruff) Reece

Each of our children have such different personalities.  Reece has never been much of a 'cuddle-bug' - certainly not like Grayson!  He is however very fond of climbing.  Not climbing things - but people.  Specifically, Doug.  He likes to scamper up him when ever he gets a chance and end up on his shoulders.  Once he is as high as he can go, he usually likes to yell out "YEE HAW!!"
