First of all , a huge thank you to all who have donated blood on behalf of Armando. Friends will be back in Mexico next week...he needs two more surgeries and needs MORE O negative BLOOD.
     We just called Paulie's cell and Armando answered. That was a first, as usually we only talk to Paulie. He was alert and much more cohesive in conversation. He has another scheduled surgery, maybe tomorrow, to fix his leg and knee. And possibly one more after that. He has only positive comments about how the doctors are putting him back together. Alex is much better. He is at his grandmother's home in La Paz.
    His sense of humor was good, and that is always an encouraging sign. He was joking, saying he wanted me to come be his nurse, and when he gets home there will be a "party".....but that will not be for a while.
     We have forwarded all your get well messages to Paulie, and Armando has seen them all. He is grateful for all the good wishes and words of encouragement from all of you and asks me to send out a "thank you" to everyone.... he says he did not know he had that many friends! He got a little emotional, trying to express his gratitude to community and friends for all the support you have shown.""
