Marge I'm sorry to hear that John is not feeling well again. Hopefully the Dr. will get him squared away soon!

I got a horrible rash all over my face just before we moved - hadn't changed anythingl Dr was "real helpfull" when he said if it didn't clear up in a month (!) that he'd send me to an ear nose & throat guy. ?????????

We went to the store and bought a bar of Neutrogena soap and a buff puff, and some Neutrogena moisturizer and I used those 2x a day. The rash cleared up and hasn't come back. I also try to keep my hands off my face.

John went to the Dr. today. He is receiving platelets and fluids and will stay in the hospital for the week end. His Dr. inserted chemo very slowly into the shunt in his head. We are looking again at bone marrow transplant when he is well enough for it.

Dear, Marge. What a rollercoaster you, John and his family have been on. We're all praying that the prize at the end is good health.

Keep strong and know that Buck and I have all of you in our prayers daily.

John is back in the hospital again. they are giving fluids, platelets and Chemo through the shunt in his skull.
The bone marrow is being thought of again.I think he has to improve a lot before they can consider that.

Marge; Prayers are being said every night for both you and John. I know this is so very hard for you, for John, and for the family. I can do little but offer my prayers and freindship.

Know this: whatever happens, the Lord will do what is correct, and in His time. We may not always understand why things happen, just that they happen for our growth and for our good. Mortality is such a tenuos and fragile thing, and is short lived for all of us. There will come a day when our frailties will be no more, and we well be together, able to appreciate and enjoy our perfected bodies.

In the meantime, we need to trust in Him. We need to learn everyday, take something of value from the experience, even if it's a bitter lesson. I know that your son has improved much from when this thread started, but still has a long race to run, with many hurtles before him. I will rejoice when that race is over, and he can again walk and catch his breath. You will be at his side on that day, and will be offering comfort along the way.

Marge, you are a loving mother, and a tender soul. We love you for that.

Seeeeeeya; Goodweed of the North
