Alex is really ill again.... so if you don't here from me you'll understand why.

Update at 6pm. Been to see the emergency doc. Has got new dissolvable tabs to try and stop being being sick < 7 times from 11am to 5pm with drink not even being tolerated.
If he keeps fluid down overnight ... great. If not back to hospital in the morning for another day of drip feeding. He's lost 14lbs since Saturday down from 70 kilos to 63 and he wasn't fat to begin with.
So fingers crossed for no more vomiting.

Have they figured out WHY he is still sick? It's one thing to treat the symptoms, but another to figure out the cause!
