This is the first post of PABLOg, the one-stop shop for all Pablo news and updates.
First thing we want to say to ALL OF YOU is: THANKS YOU FOR YOUR LOVE AND LIGHT! After sending a few emails and a making a few phone calls, the word has gotten out in a major way. Seems like it took less than an hour for the word to get a few generations down the line. The response we have gotten from our friends, Pablo's and Grady's friends, and friends of friends of friends has been stunning. So beautiful, and so simple. All this little boy needs from ANY of us at this time is LOVE and POSITIVE ENERGY. We are humbled by everyone's immediate offers of carte blanche support. This proves one thing that is so easy to forget in our society: people are good. End of story.
We'll update this blog as often as we have updates on Pablo's procedures, treatments, etc. It's important to me and Jo Ann to share this experience with everyone. This could happen to anyone, and for many of us, this kind of medical scenario puts us in the deep end of the pool knowledge-wise in an instant. If our experience can help someone down the line, we're all for it.
One important note: as much as we can get Pablo to participate and be ok with it, we'll post photos and video of him talking, playing, chillaxxin' in his ill super-automatic hospital bed - so the kids have a way to connect to this experience. We will keep medical apparatus out of the shots, so the kids don't get freaked out by what's in the background.
OK, next post will get into the what, when, why of it.
