Marge,

I am almost 40 and just days after I turned 36 I too was diag. w/leukemia. Please get as much info. as possible. There are MANY types of leukemia - some of which are not as bad as others. Just stay off the internet for your research. Many of those sites are not updated and this particular area of health is changing at a rapid speed. I am hopeful!!

Vote for politicians who support stem-cell research. Stem cell transplants can save lives!

And be sure you and yours know and live for Jesus. No matter how big or small our trials, we will be with him in the after-life if we are saved. Please find comfort in fellow Christians. You will see things in such a different light. I know that sounds "casual", but take it from someone who has leukemia, 2 young children and a wonderful husband. The Lord and His people comfort and uplift and those positive factors DO make a difference like no chemo or dr. ever can.

God Bless and feel free to e-mail me.

Praise God

In the darkness there is always light - Praise God for the blood test results!

I see your signature line and God gives you trials to bring you closer to Him! You are His child and he wants you near. Pray, talk, praise, scream at Him. He will listen! You will see changes once you really accept that He is present and He is not bringing the hurt and heartache - it is the adversary doing that - the devil. Don't let the devil win by letting him have you believe the Lord is imposing the hurt on you and yours. God bless you all richly and may you seek and hear and feel Him.

Salvata,
You don't have a Private Message link showing so I will just say it here. John has Acute Myeloid Leukemia. One if not the worst type.

They did the blood injection last night at 7 PM. One of the three Doctors in the ER went home sick so John had a very long wait. I haven't called him yet today but I will soon.

Sorry to hear John had to wait, Marge. Hope he's doing a bit better now.

Same here, Marge. Do let us know how everything is when you have a chance. I'm still sending lots of hugs and prayers your way.

John is doing very well today. He feels stronger and his voice is strong now. Sounds just like he did before he got sick. He has blood work once a week and is waiting for the results from the spinal tap. If all is well I guess they will make plans for the bone marrow transplant soon.

Dearest marge, what good news. We will continue to pray for John's continuing good progress. There is a light at the end of the tunnel and it's NOT that of an oncoming train. Hope springs eternal. Happy, happy, happy day!
