odd issue.... maybe someone can help?

so i had the third gear synchro go out on me and subsequently the tranny died... so i changed the tranny today along with the clutch, slave, t.o bearing,and main seal, 10 hours later everything is bolted up....start the car.... power steering line above the cat had blown or something so i replaced the section that was leaking and after the leak was gone... heres the issue... power steering isnt working now and i filled the fluid back up.... i dont hear the pump making any noise when i try to turn..... air bound....i tried bleeding it,,,,no im thinking dead pump.....sounds right? maybe something a bit cheaper like a switch or something? i dunno i think the car was unhappy at me. anyone have any clue about my bummed power steering?

In all reality it isnt fast at all, it didnt ever cost 250k, and it wont blow your girls panties off. that being said i drive a ford focus
