So glad to hear he's doing better Marge. You know we'll always be here for you and your family. Thoughts and prayers continue.

Is your sister still there with you?

Join the Registry - National Marrow Donor Program Registry of donors

Dove I very sorry to hear about your son. Here is the website for the National Bone Marrow Registry. I encourage everyone to visit it and join. It's as simple as a cotton swab of your cheek to enroll. I have been on it for 15 years and in August 2005 I was selected as a donor. The person fully recovered. I also started a separate thread with this info.

Take Care,

JDP

I haven't been around much for a while, Marge, so I was surprised and dismayed to read of this turn of events today. I'm glad that treatments seem to be helping some, and I'll pray that a bone marrow donor is found to relieve all of you, but especially John of this horrible burden.

Love and prayers,
June

The bone marrow test wasn't done today. The Dr. wants more white cells before he does it. He said his marrow is sleeping right now...

After Kev talked to the Doc he agreed that John was trying to go off of the Morphine too fast. ( Cold Turkey) Still having him use the button instead of the drip. Kev. told him if he gets so wound up like he was yesterday that he (Kev.) was going to push the button..LOL

He had interrupted sleep last night..I think it is because they aren't "putting " him to sleep with pain meds.

His lungs sound better today. One is more clear than the other. That is good news.

I will know more tonight when Kev. gets home. He has been pulling 12 hour shifts since Feb. 2 nd. He is picking up a lot of info. and is a quick learner.

Later
Marge

Marge, it sounds like John's coming along, slowly but surely. He sure is a fighter! You're blessed to have two such amazing sons.

Kev. just called. they took the large oxygen mask off and inserted a larger tube on in his nose. Kev. said the name of it but I can't remember it. He said his stats are good and he is doing well on the new oxygen thingy.. They also are giving him a new med for Anxiety. Now when Kev. says " I need to go eat lunch" He said "OK" Before he didn't want him out of his sight.

Yes I am blessed for having two wonderful sons..I pray that I can keep both of them.

Sizz my sisters left a week ago yesterday..

Sushie,
I copied 17 pages over the weekend and sent then down to John and Sandie and their sons to read. He is well aware of all of you and loves the fact that i have you for support.

Wonderful news Dove and I'm glad the docs held off a little longer on the testing. Such brave and strong men you have raised....both physically, mentally and spiritually...... you should be truely proud of this. Tell John he is still in my prayers as well as the rest of you too to see this through until his complete recovery. Now try and get some rest. Love Sizz

P.S. I must of missed the thread telling she went home...sorry about that.
