Unhappy

Everything looked so good but now it is back to square one..almost like last February They sent him back to Roseville Kaiser Hospital today. (He lives in Roseville) so at least he is closer to the family..

His WBC,RBC and platelets are all very low again. His Dr is on two weeks vacation so we don't know yet who will take over. He will spend at least a month in the hospital.

It's not easy, but try to take comfort from the tidal wave of care and concern flowing your way and immersing your whole family. I'm pretty sure nearly everyone looks here first to read the latest update.
Asking for strength and blessings for all of you. :)

They started Chemo today. They do 3 MIL over a 3 hour period and then then again tonight. 6AM-9AM and 6PM-midnight. He had another headache this morning so I let him rest. I will go down tomorrow. Kevin said "Mom, you better go down as much as you can now before he gets so sick he won't want us there or won't know we are there
Sandie is home with a urinary infection and just aches all over. Her Dr said it is stress related. She wants to spend the night like she did before. She is so run down she shouldn't but she was there when John really needed a Nurse.

My sis is up from So. Ca. for a few days. We went to see John last Wed. and again today. He looks so good and is so much stronger than he was when this first started last Feb. They are thinking about sending him home next Sunday. This is good news..he is soooo bored and is looking forward to going home. Sandie summited paperwork to the school to go out on catastrophic leave for the rest of this year to be with him full time.

Positive, positive, positive, Marge! Keep the faith and know that you are sooo supported. Glad to hear that John is ready to move on.

It's always better to recover at home in the environment of comfy stuff and familiar surroundings.

As always, lots of love and prayers are sent to you, John and his family. Give Sandie a big hug for Buck and me.
