Acute Paraplegia

I think it is worth clarifying what I wrote a few days back about Robb's diagnosis of acute paraplegia.

Acute is defined as, "having a sudden onset, sharp rise, and short course" and is the opposite of chronic, "marked by long duration or frequent recurrence : not acute."

So, I understand that the doctors may be saying that Robb's paraplegia may be a temporary situation.

Actually, what I really think this means is that the doctors are in agreement that Robb is A Cute Paraplegic.

I have been waiting for you to say something like "a cute paraplegic" the joke was just sitting there since your last post, like an itch I couldn't scratch! More proof that humor is often the best medicine.

Could I add another "well, duh" to this??? Robb is certainly a cute...whatever... (not sure paraplegic will be his title!) I am still waiting to hear what the second opinion was...but, know that it may not come in a timely manner! Reality... what a concept!
