HI, I am Patty Alcala and my blog is named ‘I Am Not Sick Boy’. It will provide some answers for those parents and loved ones who are caring for their chronically ill child. I am a Physician Assistant with many years of medical experience in my background. But, nothing could have prepared me for the confusion and frustration that was ahead for me when my youngest child, Alex, was born with varied chronic problems. It is my intention to help you get through the web of insurance, hospitals and doctors so you can get down to your real job: Taking care of your children.
