(Cole starts writing)
December 11th 2046 Home 9:30am
I woke up this morning to find Calina's side of the bed empty so that meant she was downstairs making breakfast for the kids I was just getting out of bed when I spotted my journal open to a page.
I opened it read it and smiled. She was such a sweetheart and after I had used the bathroom I headed downstairs to the kitchen, walked over to her, grabbed her and kissed her.
"That was so sweet."
"What was?" She asked flipping an egg.
"What you wrote in my journal."
"I'm glad you liked that and I meant every word, now get some orange juice your breakfast is almost done." She instructed turning the stove off and grabbing a plate out of the cabinent.
"Ok." I said grabbing a glass and heading over to the fridge.
I then sat down at the table as she set my plate in front of me loaded down with eggs, bacon, hashbrowns and pancakes.
"Mmm this looks delicious" I said and took a bite. "And it is" I said my mouth full of bacon.
"Daddy? Don't talk with your mouth full!" Hailey said as she took another spoonful of cereal.
"Sorry sweetie." I said swallowing and ruffling her pretty hair.
"Daddy you're messing up my hair." She whined trying to fix it.
"Oh shut up Hailey it's too early to hear your whining." Carlisle said as he looked at the TV.
"Less watching TV more eating Carlisle and don't say shut up it's be quiet" I said turning the TV off.
"Sorry Dad." He said and went back to his cereal.
"Alex what's wrong? You're awfully quiet." Calina said as she sat down at the table with her breakfast.
"I don't wanna talk about it." He murmured.
So after breakfast had been cleaned up I pulled Alex aside and looked at him.
"What's wrong bud?" I asked confused.
He sighed and leaned in to whisper in my ear.
"I wet my bed Daddy." He said starting to cry.
"And how long has this been going on?" I asked a little sternly.
"A while, I never told anyone but I would have Alana wash the sheets every night so that you and Mommy wouldn't know and also it hurts when I go." He said looking at his feet.
"It hurts?" I said with worry in my tone.
"I'll be back." I said and went to find Calina.
"Babe?" I said coming into Alex's room.
"Yes?" She asked turning to me.
"Did you see that Alex wet the bed?"
"Yes I was just looking at that, Is he ok?"
"No... I think we should take him to the hospital. He says it hurts when he goes."
Her eyes filled with worry and she covered her mouth. "Oh Cole something is wrong with our baby."
"Shh there there, Dr. Nacoma will figure it out." I assured her giving her a hug.
I quickly called Mom and Dad and had them come over to watch Hailey and Carlisle.
Then we got in the Hummer and drove Alex to the hospital.
"Can I help you?" Asked the nurse at the front desk.
"Yeah I need to see Dr. Nacoma, my son Alex says that when he pees it hurts."
"Oh dear... I need you to fill these forms out and then I'll take him back to a room to get him examined."
"Ok." I said and took the forms from her, it only took twenty minutes to fill them out and then we were led to Exam room nine and waiting for Dr. Nacoma.
"Good morning Cole, Calina and Alex what seems to be the problem?" She asked coming into the room and setting his folder on the counter.
"It hurts when I pee Natalie." He said crossing his legs.
"Do you have to go now Alex?" She asked getting on her knees so that she was level with his tiny height.
"Yes, but I'm afraid to cause of the pain."
"I'll go with you buddy." I said and led him to the bathroom.
Everything was fine until he started going and then before long tears appeared in his eyes and he started crying.
"Ow ow ow! Make it stop Daddy it hurts so much" He cried as he finally stopped and sank to his knees.
I felt my heart dissolving my son was sick and felt like he couldn't tell us.
I went back out to Natalie and explained what had happened and she took him to an emergency room.
We waited an whole two hours until she came back out and looked at us. "Cole, Calina, Alex has an urinary tract infection."
We grabbed each other in tears and hugged.
"How bad?" I asked.
"Bad enough that he's gonna have to have a kidney transplant and in order for that we need a donor."
My heart sank more cause I knew just how hard it was to get donors cause Mom's Mom Dana had passed away due to lack of donors for bone marrow.
I prayed that one would be found cause I did not wanna lose my son.
Alex had to spend the night at the hospital for more tests and Calina stayed with him while I went home to break the news to the family.
"A urinary tract infection? That's terrible" Dad said when I told him and Mom.
"I know, and the messed up thing is is that it's been going on for a month and he never told us about it, am I that bad of a Father that my own son couldn't tell me he was sick?" I sniffled.
"You're not a bad Father honey... Maybe he felt that with you worrying about the babies that it wasn't bad."
"But it is bad Mom, he could die and I... Would never be able to live with myself." I cried burying my face in her shirt.
