I talked to John this morning.
the Dr. said if the boys do match it would take a few months to get started and John would need to find a place to live for about 3 months. We thought Stanford U. had a place for John and Sandie to live..we were led to believe this up here. the social Worker said no so.
He is to start Chemo again on Monday. This will be the routine until a donner
is found. Dr. said it could be a year from now.

I can't add to what is going on here, except to say that you, your sone, and your family are in my nightly prayers. I am behind you in the only way I can be.

Don't falter, Marge. We have to remain in a positive vein for John. Things WILL work out for him. Keep a good frame of mind. We're all behind you and send love and support. It's not over. Stand strong!

Marge, always remember that God has the final word. Doctors, as smart as they are, don't know it all, but God does.

Continued prayers for John.

John had a pass to go home for the 4th. He was very happy about that. One son made his favoriate banana Pudding and the other did BBQ Ribs. He had to be back by 8Pm but he was able to see the Fireworks at the Fair grounds through the large window in his room.
they start the chemo in the evening and next Am. then 1 day off and start again..Mon. Wed. and Friday. He thinks he might go home Sat. This is a lower dose so no headaches so far. He comes back in 4 weeks to do this all over again.
