    Well Dew...you just keep coming here all you want. There is support for YOU here as well as Noah. While Noah is the one with the phyisical challenges, serious illness affects the whole family. Separation is hard enough without all the stress and worry of sick child. Anytime you need some hugs and a kind "ears", we are all here for you as well.

    Maybe you could tell some embarrassing childhood stories so we can rib him when he comes back. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] Just kidding!

    PAK
    The visit yesterday was really nice. He was himself as far as his spirits. The doctor spoke with dh and I for a bit and asked how I thought he looked. He is still really emmaciated but mostly I thought he looked pastey. Well 6 weeks in an 8x10 room will do that to you - so the doctor said he could unhook all the tubes and we could go for a walk with him for a half hour - then he winked and said if you want to walk a little further take a couple of hours - just don't tell me WHERE you are going. So, we took him off hospital grounds - wanted to go to a nature walk botanical gardens type park but no wheel chair - so he decided we should take him to a couple pet stores. He stayed in his hospital garb, and needed a little support getting around. We were gone for a good 2 hours and I think he was totally exhausted when we got back. He has not gained any weight since the J-Tube was placed, but they say that is not unusual after a body has been starved so long that it may take a couple of weeks to notice a change. He is really hunched over and caved in and looks a bit how Don Knotts did...but they said they would get physical therepy up there for him so hopefully that will help strengthen him to where he can hold his body upright again.
    PAK I saw the card you made. WOWza, it is really professional! I enjoyed reading EVERYones cards. I am truly blown away at how thoughtful everyone has been.

    Dew,
    I was hoping to get the plant in the mail today, but its still too wet..
    I took it out of its tray a few days ago, but its been so cool and damp up here, that its still dripping!
    so I brought it into work today and I will let it sit indoors over the weekend..
    then mail it monday..
    its a small sarracenia purpurea with several pitchers!
    I would have liked to send a bigger sarr, but im afraid of pitchers getting too damaged in shipping..
    so this nice little purp should ship nicely..
    Scot

    I'm so glad you got your visit in and it sounds like a nice one too. He must have been so happy to get out of that hospital room for a change!

    Hopefully he'll start gaining some weight soon. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    IM BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    They got internet access in the hospital finally! . [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] So I`ll be on for probably a while anyways. The reason my mom hasn`t updated in a while is cause her computer died So she sent it back to gateway for repairs hopefully the warrenty will cover it.

    As for me I`m all healed up from surgery and even though they`ve been pumping about 4,000 calories of jevity and nutrin for the last 1 1\2-2 weeks I`ve only gained a few pounds Still not eating anything either.

    BTw. Thanks to every body who sent cards letters presents or posted there thoughts on the forums. You guys\gals have been so nice! Oh and Btw PAAK that card you sent me is realy cool!
