The Dr. sent the paper work to his room for John and Kevin to have blood work done. Something they can look at to see if they are compatible for the bone marrow transplant when the time is right.

Just be sure your two boys do their homework correctly...no erasures and that they use perfect penmanship. That will ensure they both get an A+!

What a great turn of events! So much different from this time a couple of weeks ago.

The prayers and good thoughs will continue to go your way!

Best wishes to all of you.

Dove, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you that they are compatible. It's great that the doctors are now looking forward.

Here we go again.. I called Johns room and someone else answered..so I caled the hospital and they said he is back in ICU. I called ICU and the nurse said I was the second family member that's called..SO WHAT!! She hasn't had time to assess him yet..call back in 45 min. She did say the Dr. was in there and said yes Sandie was with him. I asked her to have Sandie call my cell phone. She said she would..when?? In 45 Min.? I called Kevin and he said he was in the shower ( almost..he had a repair to do for Johns business this morning.) Then he is going right down to the hospital. Then I will have some answers! Kev doesn't fool around when it comes to his brother's health. He did say Saandie called him and said John was having trouble breathing and has fluid in his lungs. Just yesterday John and the "Biker" nurse had words about him being put on the breathing treatment..she said "every 4-6 hours. " John said you better read the chart ! It's every 2-4 hours or as needed." She said " I'll do it this time!! The regular nurse came in and kev said "did you hear that??" She said she is and then stopped in mid sentance...Kev finished it..a b****. The nurse said "yes" Now look where he is again!! My boys nor their dad are complainers or winers and they know that on ICU. Maybe they need to keep him there now that I think more about it.

Keep him in your hearts and Prayers.
Love
Marge

Real caring nurse!! Why in the world is she in ICU?

Maybe a brief stay back in ICU will even things out and John can get back to a private room real soon. We'll continue to say prayers for all of you. Chin up and be strong. We love you.

Marge,
maybe ICU is best place for John if the care is more personalized..If he needs breathing treatment so many times a day and is not getting them in a private room, you can bet I'd be pushing the button to get them in there. Right now, what ever is best for him rules...And don't be afraid to be a squeeky wheel. If John needs something make noise til they get it for him..
hugs,
kadesma
