HI, I am Patty Alcala and my blog is named ‘I Am Not Sick Boy’ that 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 child. If you should ever want to contact me my email is: pattythepa@gmail.com.

  4. At about 18-months-old I had a blood clot removed from my brain. There was concern that I would suffer from severe learning difficulties
    as a consequence of the clot. It left me with severely reduced vision (I am registered blind but have some mobility vision) but, fortunately I have no
    impairment of my mental faculties. My mum got very little help from social services at the time and basically coped with the help of my grandparents who
    are now both sadly deceased. You are doing great work with your blog. Thank you. Kevin

    • Thank you so much for the encouragement. I am sending an idea in to a large foundation today who are asking for new ways to go about caring for chronically ill children and their families. I do see change happening.

  7. Here’s a message from Türkiye to say “thank you” Patty. I appreciate your recent ‘follow’, knowing how many interesting and entertaining blogs there are out there.

    Blogging since June 2013, my little corner of the world tries to offer an eclectic smattering of posts, from basic amateur photography, to sharing my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day-to-day happenings here on our fruit farm in southern Turkey. I also throw in a few of my observations on life and lighter-hearted stuff for good measure.

    You are more than welcome to have a look around, stay a while and have a trawl through my collection. There are plenty of categories within the drop-down menus to help in said digging process. Of course, if you have any comments, suggestions or concerns, feel free to let me know – I’m not easily offended 🙂

    Hope you have a great day…
