John has an appointment tomorrow (Wednesday) at noon. Stanford U. is about 3 hours away from us. This is for a consultation and He thinks a test or two. They will decide if he is a candidate for the bone marrow transplant.

One day at a time...

I will be holding up John in prayer. I'll pray that the doctors will have wisdom in planning his treatment. I hope and pray John will be able to have his bone marrow transplant.

That's great news, Marge. One day at a time. I'll be thinking of all of you at appointment time.

[B]I sent this to my sis earlier today.

They are on the way home now. they just talked, filled out paper work etc. I don't know what the etc. is because the phone was breaking up.
The Dr. said if Tim or Chris match it could take place in 6-8 weeks. If not it could take 6 months and he has to continue with the Chemo. He will have to be down there for 3 months.
The downside of all this is that Tim wouldn't be able to work with Kevin for 8 weeks since it is very hard on both parties.. there goes the landscaping business..If Chris does he would probably loose hid job and if it takes place during the school year then Sandie's job would be on the line.
Please continue with the Prayers,
Marge
[B]

Darling Marge.... you need to look at this positively! It would be a blessing if Tim or Chris were a match and the procedure could take place soon. What kind of monster would terminate an employee for donating bone marrow?

I know folks who have been donors, and they were up and functioning normally long before 8 weeks.

This is really good news! Prayers won't stop, tho!


Love you.
