John is on oxygen and also does his own breathing treatments. I haven't seen the set up yet but I will tomorrow.

I understand the wipe out..John was such a strong person mentally and physically. Now he is week and we think some of his brain cells were "fried" as Kevin puts it. He doesn't think as clearly now.

They did a blood test yesterday and will do one again in two weeks. If they are OK then he will go down to Stanford U. If not then back into the hospital for more chemo.

Let's do a "cheer" for John's blood cells. May they perform admirably. As for the brain cell thing, perhaps he's so far behind the 8 ball that he has some catching up to do. Let's just pray that his body, and brain cells, become healthy as his recovery progresses.

Just be assured, he's always in Buck's and my prayers.

Omigawd, Marge. I was on my way to bed and thought I'd check DC one more time. What a wonderful way to end my night. I'm almost in tears. Will say extra prayers to keep it so. You must be jumping out of your skin. I wish I could give you and John a great big hug right now!!!!!!:clap :
