Dove, the sickness of your son seems a lot like my dh's uncle a couple of years back. He got so sick we were afraid he wouldn't get over it for quite a while - leukemia was his problem. After a while he began to be on the mend and is now in total remission for over a year and looks and feels as healthy as he ever did. I hope the same recovery is in your son's future.

[B]John has had IV"s and platelets this week. The fluids are set up for 3 times a week. He goes into the hospital again on Monday for more Chemo. He will be there for about a week. The Dr. is trying real hard to get him ready and to have him stay ready for a transplant (bone marrow) when a match is found. It might take several months.

Green Lady,
John can't eat anything grown in the ground raw. Everything has to be cooked. Contamination is a worry. There is a product called Juice Plus that is suppose to have the Veg. and Fruits in it. She is trying to get him to take them.

I'm so very sorry to hear about your son, Dove...
Our children are always so precious to us, even as they become older...
May you and he continue to be loved and comforted....

Even though it seems he is making three steps forward and two backward, he is still making forward progress. Hang on tight and lean on the support you get here.

Marge,

I'm new here and just saw this post. I thought that sharing my experience with you may give some insight or comfort to you!

When I was younger a friend of mine was diagnosed with lukemia. I remember him dissapearing from school for about 3 months before paying our class a visit. I don't believe someone so young can truely understand the impact of something this serious.

Now that I'm older, I can certainly appreciate what he and his family went through and despite all that had happened to him and his family, I was delighted to hear some 10 or 15 years later, with the support of his family and friends, he had completely recovered and continued to develop into a fine young man with a bright future.

Although I'm not a very good at hugs, I'm not really the payer kind of person and I know I could never possibly understand what you are going through. I can say that Ray and his family helped me to realize how powerful a person can be if they are surrounded by those who truely love and care for them.

My warmest regards to you all!

Marge, Yes I am aware of Juice Plus. Very good. Also, BarleyLife is excellent. I know many who have overcome cancer using that and a veggie diet. I can get you info on both Juice+ and BarleyLife if needed.

Continued prayers for John and all the family.
