Hey I am alive !!!!! Patrick is out of the Hospital, he was actually only in for 3 days. He does have a fairly serious condition but now that we know what it  is we are fixing it …..slowly. He has an infection in his blood called Psuedomonas, usually it is a bacteria found in infants, and it causes people to go deaf, in early infancy. We have no Idea how long he has had it. Only about 15-20 years ago they did not have the foggiest notion of how to remedy this , they would just monitor people until they died( if they got it later in life , at least that is what the Dr said) The Dr’s seem to think he has always had it but the infection that he got from his cast on his foot may have exasperated it.

My Mom is doing very well , she went to reahabilitation place after her latest hospital stay to learn more about her COPD and how to deal better with it.

And to end on a happy note Patrick will be having his last WC SURGERY on his shoulder 8/27/08 !!!!! Yes that is right 1year 7 months and 10 days after it all started we truly will be seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Another 4-6 weeks after that and he should be fit as a fiddle, then WC will examine him and release him !! I know its sick to be excited about surgery but whooooo boy has it been long in coming.

Sorry about my lack of posting but Life has been somewhat disruptive of late. Thank you all who have checked in Via comments /emails etc etc. I wanted to post this so you all knew what was going on. I will post an update after next Wednesday, if not before then.   🙂
