20: When we arrived in Orlando, Jenson started acting very lethargic and complained of a headache. After talking to a doctor, we took him to a local Urgentcare and they sent him on to Celebration Hospital. We were there most of the night having numerous tests and scans. He was dehydrated and had a virus. It was a rough night, but we were so happy that it wasn't anything worse. Celebration was the most amazing hospital we have ever been to. It had scripture on every wall when you entered, the nicest nurses we have ever had, and was owned by Disney. God was letting us know that HE was still in control and that HE was taking care of Jenson.
