Dear Marge,

You all continue to be in our prayers. I am a firm believer in prayer and miracles--How can I not be when I was once given one hour to live?

You mentioned platelets. Everyone reading this should check with your local hospital or blood bank to find out where the nearest place is where you can donate platelets. When I lived in California I gave platelets regularly (I have so many that they called me a platelet making machine). I need to find my nearest center here--I think it is probably in Charlotte. Giving platelets is a lot like a regular blood donation but you don't lose as much fluid. It takes a little longer (an hour or so), but it is worth it. At the center where I gave they called platelets "liquid sunshine." While you can only give blood every 8 weeks, you can give platelets every couple weeks. Help a leukemia patient, give platelets.

Barbara

Marge,

Will pray for you and your family!
I work in a hospital on a med/surg floor and know too well what you, your son, and your family must be going through.
Will pray that God will give you strength, peace, and comfort!

My son Kevin relieved my DIL so she could go home and shower because she has a meeting with a Dr at 1 PM today. It is now 11:40 AM. I pray that all goes well...he had a pretty good night last night. they brought his oxygen level down to 80 but he wrote "more air!!" so they increased it to 85.

Kevin (Bless him..he is so close to his brother) bought a board with magnetic letters and an eraser board so John could communicate . What a great idea!

4 Dr.s met and two said they were very surprised he was still here. Thank God for miracles...
Love
Marge~Dove

And, the fact he has such a faithful doctor! Excellent!
