I just knew something good would happen Marge Maybe it's time to start a new thread about John's progress! What great news. You and your family must be so relieved that he is breathing on his own again.

Re: John

I'm typing this for my sister, Marge, about son John. The good news today is that he was sitting in a chair this morning (still attached to intravenous, but not intubated, using oxygen mask), eating canned fruit cocktail, canned pears, diet 7-up, diet coke, and then his lunch arrived. Sliced turkey on dark wheat, cranberry juice, orange slices, fruit cocktail, and soup. He is looking good too, the color returned to his face and the excess water is leaving his body. We are so happy to have this good news to share with you. We don't know about the results of the chemo treatment yet, to know if he will have to begin the second round of it next week. Marge will keep you informed as to his progress.

Please keep John in your prayers that the cancer is in remission and that it stays that way. Praise God for his love and mercy. We all thank you for your prayers also.

Thank you Caroli for keeping us updated. That is truly good news. Marge - the Bear and I send our prayers to John and the entire family.

This thread has officially turned into "John's recovery thread".
