John went home today. No headaches or vomiting this time. They used a lower dose than before. When he does go to Stanford the dose will be very very high..Dr said he will be sicker than he has ever been.
The boys haven't been tested yet..Christopher's boss said if he took any more time off he would be fired.Something has to be worked out.

Sandie said he is eating every thing that doesn't move..just like he did when he was little. That is so good to hear because he just about quit eating there for awhile.

Wow, Marge. So good to hear John's eating again. That has to help him feel better.

Sounds as though Christopher's boss doesn't have a heart. Surely some solution can be worked out. I can't imagine the situation is so black and white.

Keep your chin up. Everyone's behind you all and here for you when needed.

Both of John's son were tested yesterday. Their blood would have arrived at Stanford today. I pray that one of them match...odds are 30% that it will match.
John sounds good on the phone.He says he is doing pretty good. He had his blood work done today and the Dr wants to see him next week.
Thanks again for your support.
Marge

Marge, it's good to see things moving forward. Let's all think positively that at least one of his boys is a match. Prayers and best wishes continue.

Marge - I'm not sure how this falls into Christopher's job but check it out anyway - Employees Rights to Family and Medical Leave

It's good to hear that he is eating again. Prayers are always going out.

Any updates?

Any word about John? I'm new to DC but I'm so impressed at the outpouring of support from members for this member's son. I was faced with a similar situation years ago - long before internet - and I marvel at how an online community like this can reach out to each other in such a real way.
