When Sandie came home from work today they went right to the ER again. It was around 5:30 PM. It is now 9:45 Pm and they are still there. She called Kevin and said they have him on IV's and a stronger pain patch. The Nurse said that she thinks the headaches are caused by the large doses of Chemo.

Oh Marge,
John, you his wife the whole family have been through so much, I bet it seems as if it never stops. But, John is moving forward each day and having you all by his side and pulling for him helps him so much. Hopefully these headaches will stop soon and he can just rest and grow stronger each day. Will pray for this and for all of you.Hang on, you're loved.

Marge, I am sure that I am not the only one like this, I check this thread often but have not posted. I say a prayer for you everyday.

Tuesday
John went into the ER again today at 9 AM and is still there. It is 6:15 PM now. They did another spinal tap. I hated to hear that but they thought it was needed. So far I haven't heard about any results.
Just how much is he supposed to take?? ;-(

Stay the course, Marge. We're all behind you. Lots of hugs and prayers are sent your way. Give John a big hug for Buck and me.

Kevin just called. John has been admitted to the hospital. They found a few cancer cells in the spinal fluid. They are going to inject chemo directly into the spine and then send him to another hospital in the area to see the Neurologist. They plan on drilling a hole into his brain and putting a shunt into the brain in "the quiet" area and putting Chemo in there.
