Although probably most people here know this, some of you who do not go to the Trade Forum regularly or maybe never, might not know. *So I thought I'd let folks know what is going on with Pond Boy (Noah).
Noah started losing a lot of weight several months ago...he was unable to keep food down. *He was put into the hospital several weeks ago so they could find the problem and try to get his weight back up. *Since that time, Noah has been battling a lot of problems. *They found an artery strangling his intestines, he's had an infection in his feedling line and in his lungs; he's had high fevers and night sweats. *He is gravely ill.
His mom has been dropping in to the post on the Trade Forum to periodically update us to his condition. *It is not improving but getting worse.
I hope you all will keep Noah in your thoughts and prayers and send every scrap of good, positive power you can muster his way. *He has been getting well wishes and entertainment items from some people which I'm sure he appreciates. *The CPers at CPUK are following his condition as well.
This is where the CP community shines...we are all one in heart. *Noah is one of our own. *If you want to send Noah a card or something to keep him entertained or brighten his spirit, his address at the hospital is below. *Also I'm including the link to the Trade forum thread where his Mom posts the updates for you all to follow.
Please let him know he is missed and we want him well again. *Lets see if all our collected, positive energy can get Noah back to his family and to the forums where his friends are. *[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
