John is feeling better today. One of the nurses that he likes has him on a ser time for meds. He slept pretty well last night..even Sandie slept until 8:00 this morning. They had him use the walker and he did very well. They said enough steps to = a walk around his bed.

Great news, Marge. Before you know it John will be winning the ICU marathon. He's already in training.

So happy to hear he's moving about. That should help his back problem.

He had a real good day today.
He is within the normal range of platelets, WBC and RBC. Good news!
He walked some 5 times today and is looking forward to go to a skilled nursing home...the next step before home for a little while before Stanford U. for the bone marrow transplant.

Rah, John! Rah, John! Way to go! We couldn't be happier. You pump iron and we'll continue to pump those prayers your way.

Marge, we can't tell you how pleased we are!!

Marge,
it's wonderful to hear John is up and walking..I can imagine how proud you are and how happy for his progress. Once he starts walking like he is, his appetite will improve, his enegy will start to come back, sleepiing will be easier, and he will be on the way..I'm so happy for all of you..You all remain in my prayers, so take care and know we all love you.
hugs,
kadesma
