My most sincere apology for being skeptical of the address. Tracing back to the original thread, it is obvious that the address is legitimate. A check will go out today. The following is a cut from that thread:
Of course snail mail to the hospital will be good, too. Here is the address of the hospital:
Mount Carmel East Hospital 6001 East Broad Street Columbus, Ohio 43213
Patrick Patterson ~ ICU
If he has to be transferred it would be to Mt Carmel Medical Center (downtown). I will give you the address for that if necessary.
I just checked with the hospital and the do allow card and small arrangements of flowers in ICU. Very unusual for around here.
Karen's mom was able to fly up from Atlanta to help out with the boys--since we will be gone or tied up with Wayne's graduation this weekend. Emotionally, this is something like giving birth to twins where one is healthy and the other has congenital challenges.
