They said they were going to move him on Monday..They did but it was really Tuesday. At 1:00 AM!! He didn't eat lunch until 4 Pm so he had dinner at 8 PM. So the big move was in the wee hours in the morning. Sandie said they may have has an hours sleep. They sure looked tired.

I am going down today and stay. This is the time to register the Kindergarten children so she has to work in the afternoons this week.

Then after I came home Kev. called and said the DR. said he will go home in two weeks ! This should be good news but how can he when he requires so much medical attention? He isn't even able to sit up on the side of the bed yet.

We will just have to wait and see...and Pray.
Marge

Marge, I know you're worried about his coming home. But, I bet the doctor sees how strong he is and feels he can make the move and do fine. Besides, he has you, his brother,kids,wife and thats all he needs. e is going to sleep better, eat better and just get better! What a wonderful day to look forward to, going HOME

You still have prays coming from here. The last thing I do at night and the first thing I do in the morning is say a prayer for John. And I ask God to give you and his family strength to help him through this.

I sat with him today from noon-4:30 Boy what a work out!! takes me back to when the kids were sick..always needing something. He is almost bald now. Kevin has offered to shave his head for him. Shucks..he has long hair ( he is a drummer) and wears it in a pony tail. When he was living at home it was like pulling teeth to take him for a hair cut. He has had it long for 16 years.
The blood test came back and Kev. only matched 2 out of 5. ( ??) Being blood brothers I thought they would have been at least a 4..Doc said not to wory that there will be a match by the time he is ready for it. Sandie thinks it is a blessing in disguise because he is needed here at home to run John's Landscapeing business. I agree. He told the DR. last week that if he matched he wanted them to take out enough for John and enough for someone else. He hates the thought of another family going though what we are so he wants to help. I suggested that he could give platelets when things settel down here.

All of you mean so much to me. Thank you so much from all of my family.

Hello Marge. I bet John will start to feel more himself when he's back home. Hospitals are depressing places to be just because of the change to your routine and because you haven't got your own things around you. Sleeping in his own bed will feel good! Looking out the window and seeing a familiar view will be cheering. Shingles is a very nasty illness as well. I remember when my Dad had it. He said it was incredibly painful and takes quite a while to get over fully. Looking forward to reading more of your updates and thinking about you all, as ever.
