I am so glad this is now a sticky thread! I keep looking for updates and found it hard to find the topic, so thanks to the admins/mods

Hope your keeping yourself well Marge and Caroli. I assume John is still doing well as I write this. Let us know your results on his recent chemo treatment when you guys can. Still hoping he wont have to endure yet another treatment next week. Take care sisters!

John had a good night last night so Sandie was able to sleep all night. Kevin had a repair job to do for the business (Landscaping/sprinkler systems. drainage etc.) then he relieved Sandie until 9 PM tonight.

I went down for about 2 hours. He really looked good. But then tonight Kev. said his feeding tube (in his nose) was clogged so they had to take care of that and insert it deeper. Then do X-Rays.

They are going to do blood work on Monday to check for lead..The fast drying glue he uses on PVC Pipe ( for 20 years now) says it can cause Luekimia..I would think that it shouldn't have been so easy to buy. I think he found that out on line..

It's getting pretty tired where i am sitting so I'll close for tonight.
Thanks MichaelMarie for the card..again. You are so sweet.
May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

Walk towards the Sunshine and the Shadows will fall behind you!

It thrills me to hear of the positive progress. Keep on keeping on. I so wish we weren't so good at creating things that can hurt us (cancer causing solvents, radio-active substances, etc.).

Keep prayer a major part of your life. I have little else to say. There is little else to be said. You are a wonderful lady, for your husband, your children, and are a good freind to all of us as well. I'd say that you are learning in this life what you are supposed to be learning.

Marge............I can't tell you how happy I am that he is improving. The clogged feeding tube is pretty common really and nothing to be concerned about. I will continue to pray and I hope you know how much I think of you all. Thoughts and prayers as always....Love Sizz
