You are right Marge,there is no better medicine in this world than family and home. And it sounds like John has the best of them.

Glad to hear that John is home. He must be happy and content with all the family and his familiar surroundings. Maybe with some rest tonight, his headache with be gone by morning. My best to you all Marge.

There's no place like home, and no place like one's own bed, surrounded by loved ones!

Continued prayers for John, you, and the whole family.

Monday
John went to the Dr today. He put Chemo into the shunt John has in his head. Back Friday for more platelets and then next week for the draw of bone marrow out of his hip. Dr said it would go on like this (up and down) until they could get him well enough to go down state to Stanford U. for the marrow transplant. That is the scary part..he will be SOOOO sick. they have to hit him 50 times harder with Chemo before the transplant.No idea when or how long he will be there.

Stand strong and stay the course, Marge. Buck and I send love and prayers and let John and his family know he's ever in those prayers.

Marge - John is in my prayers always! You, Sandi, and his boys are also in my prayers - he's a strong man. He's got a family that loves him and strangers that care deeply about his recovery!!!

Don't stare off into space. Stare DCward and lean on your DC family. Turn to your computer and have some discourse with us. We're always here.

[B]Tuesday
John was feeling pretty good this morning. It is a good thing for a reprieve because the Chemo could hit him again with the headaches again in a few days.
I try to stay positive but it is like waiting for the other shoe to drop. [/B

That's great to hear, Marge. Baby steps. Remember, Rome wasn't built in a day. This just means he's one step closer to the bone marrow transplant. One day at a time. Big hugs to you.
