For those of you who remember reading my post regarding my grandaughter. Her mom had been pushing her in her stroller when a disturbed youth, verbally attacked my daughter and then bent over and spit on my little grandaughter's eye.
Since then, I've had the chance to speak with my family physician....the baby had blood tests the morning after the incident, and will be tested again in 3 months , then 6 months (unlike every 6 wks like we previously thought). They are testing for HIV, Hepatitis, any blood borne diseases, but the Dr. reassured me that the chances of her having contracted anything are slim to none.
The young man has been arrested and charged. The Canadian RCMP are treating this case very seriously. There was a big right up in the city newspaper (witholding names) of the event . They are asking the couple who was present when this happened to please come forward . I sure hope they do. His preliminary hearing is in June. If my daughter so much as sees him she is to call 911. I'm afraid I don't have much faith in the justice system and worry so much about my girls' safety.
Meanwhile, my health has been hay-wire. My CD meds have been increased...my BP meds have been increased and the dr. gave me something for panic attacks which have been happening often lately.
If you are inclined to do so, please keep my beautiful angel in your prayers...and pray that the couple who witnessed this revolting incident come forward to testify on her behalf.
God Bless,
tired old Mary

I am sorry to hear that you, your daughter and grand daughter have been subjeted to all of this. Having crohn's is tough enough without adding to it with this going on.

I am glad that the RCMP have manaed apprehend the fellow that did this. With this I am hoping that the couple that witnessed this will come forward to help with this case.

My prayers are with you and your family.

God Bless you for putting up with my rantings. You are true friends and so supportive. You've made me feel better . Just knowing I can come to you when I worry or hurt is so comforting.
My little grandaughter doesn't know it...but she is in a lot of good people's prayers and thoughts....how could she not be ok. No wonder she is always laughing and smiling....she must instinctivley know that she is loved.

Mary, I was so horrified when you first told us about this incident with your granddaughter and I have thought of you all often. I am so glad this man was arrested and I hope this legal system of ours gives him what he deserves. You and your family are in my prayers.

I'm so glad that the doctor said the chances are slim to none that she contracted anything.  I hope the other couple will come forward.

MC, have they done test on the @#%$~ that spit on her to see if he carries any of the aforementioned maladies. I pray not and hope justice will be served in this case but I fear not. Things like this make me wish to come out of retirement.
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

I think he is HIV positive. I talked to my family doctor and asked if he was . she said she couldn't disclose that but in the same breath said, we don't order these tests on a 5 month old without due concern which leads me to believe that he may be. My daughter said she didn't see any blood in his saliva which is the only way the dr. says she could have contracted something..so I'm praying and believing that she will be just fine. Thankyou all so much for your support. It means so much to me...you will never know how helpful it is.
