    I am so sorry to hear Noah is so ill. Please make sure he knows we are all thinking of him. And thanks for the address. Tell him not to worry about any trade stuff. That's not important.

    And thanks Noah's Mom for keeping us updated.

    I will be thinking of him...I hope he improves rapidly.

    Oh no..............I feel so sorry for him.
    I really hope he gets better. And he cant even eat, that
    is really, really bad. Even when he is in Hospital, he still had thoughts
    about sending seeds and plants to some ppl here like shloaty.
    I live in England(Europe England) it will be expensive to send
    a letter over, but I will anyway. I will send a card in the near future.
    Keep us posted on how he iis doing.
    Best wishes,

    Thanks, Dew, for the update on Noah's progress. We all appreciate knowing how he is coming along. Please take care of yourself, too. I have a card in the mail for Noah. Thanks for the address. Anything you can think of that we could do by long distance, let us know.

    Noah's a good kid. I sent a letter and an old-skool gamebook today. I hope he gets well soon.

    Yeah, pretty serious. The PIC line his Mom mentioned is like an intravenous (IV) line. (You know, where they stick a needle in your vein & hook you up to a bag of fluid? Usually just before surgery, then as you recover & can drink, they take it out.) Except this is larger (ouch!), is sometimes placed in the upper chest, right into a major vein & delivers more nutrients than possible through an IV line. They would only do this, of course, when you can't eat or drink for days & you're continuing to lose weight.
    His Mom explained earlier in this thread what they think made him so sick.

    Well, he has a bag of fat and a bag of nutrients dumping into him via the PIC line - yes into his chest, yet is still losing weight. Not sure if gaining weight (if he ever does) will correct the mesenteric artery syndrom or if surgery will be required. This artery wrapped around his intestines is not the source of his illness but rather another complication of it. They have yet to determine definitively what his 'problem' is.
    Here is a before/after the before was taken when he was released 6 days post snake bite, the after was taken when he was 9 pounds heavier than today. His face has been whited out to protect his privacy somewhat.

    I can not post a direct link with angelfire so you will have to copy paste the url

    as remarkable the weight loss is in his chest and abdomen it really doesnt compare to the evidence in his face. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]
    he is a tremendous kid and has not complained once.
