Gail, so true about getting dehydrated. On Friday I forgot to drink much of anything the whole day and almost ended up passing out. Joe Dorris, a good friend of my dad and I, actually had to get an IV as a result of dehydration. He ended up being fine, but it's hard to remember to drink fluids when there's so much going on!
