wishing John a peacful, restful night..But you know, to me, when a patient starts to complain, and John should have, it's a sign he is more aware of things around him and himself, and he is improving..All of you rest, there is always someone watching over you.

Another night with a little sleep. this time it sounded like the nurses were having a party...Sandie had to ask them a couple of times to hold it down. John did talk to the head nurse today about several things.

Wed. they do another Bone Marrow test to see where they are as far as the cancer goes. If things look OK then John, Sandie and Kevin will go to San Francisco to Stanford U. for a week to do a Bone marrow transplant. S. F. is about 2 hours from here.

Dearest Marge,

What you have just posted is testament to John's strength. It is so much more positive than a few days ago and certainly better than a week ago.

Keep strong and know that there are hundreds of us praying for you and your whole family.

Be well.

So glad to hear this news about the transplant - the best news yet. Sorry to hear about the nurses, though. This is unacceptable behaviour, especially on a ward where patients are weak.

I'm keeping you in my thoughts, as always.

Dear Marge,

As others have said, I'm glad you are keeping us updated. I'm glad for the good news. I'm sorry John is having to go through some unnecessary rough times (those nurses need to start putting their patients' needs first). We are continuing to pray.

They were having a PARTY?!?! Thats not right. They should keep it to their break room. When is John going to be transported?
Thanks again for keeping us up to date Marge.

well, hang in there marge. you've been through tough times before, and you've got your families, your own - and us here, for support.

better days are ahead, i'm sure of it.

This is Saturday...sometime during the night Thursday he had to have more attention..his heart rate (pulse I think is what they mean) was up to 150 and his breathing was very labored. So back on the oxygen mask that covered his face and held together in the back by Velcro straps. Later during the day Friday they put him back on a different mask and he was at 106 heart rate and 96 oxygen.

My grandson called today and said he was doing better..Kevin is helping the other grandson move back home but will call me later with a better report.

Both sons are worried about me visiting John..the floor is slippery and the nurses drop things ..like the caps off of the different things they use for his Iv's. They said " all we need is for you to fall again and break your hip like you did in Dad's Hospital room" another thing is John sees the stress in my face and it stresses him...They are so protective that sometimes I want to send both of them to my woodshed..

Love y'all

May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.
