I just wanted to give everybody an update regarding the patch design.
I know a lot of us are quite busy with the process at the moment, but it's going to need to take a break for the time being on my behalf. I have sent emails to everyone who has sent design proposals to me.
I just came home from school today and got some bad news. My mother has just gone to hospital (expected) with my father, and was told that she has way too much CO2 in her blood — and not enough oxygen. As a result, her organs are being starved of oxygen. This was not a huge shock to us as she has been on an oxygen machine for the past 9 months or so to assist here in her breathing. The doctors are now trying to drain this carbon dioxide out of her blood, and it's unclear how she's going to react to that treatment while in ICU.
All I really want to say is that I would appreciate if you to keep my mom, Vivienne O'Regan, in your thoughts prayers during this tough time. That is all I ask. I have one more week of school left and then I will be on my holidays. I don't think I'm going to have as much free time as I planned, so I apologise if you send me something and don't get a reply as soon as I usually get back to you. I only heard this news today so details are still pretty sketchy. I have a brother and sister so a lot of my time will need to be spent keeping them positive, as well as the rest of my family.
Thank you in advance for your thoughts and prayers. Cian
