Thanks sandy, welcome back

The Dr at Stanford U. contacted John's Dr. He wanted Kevin ( My other son) to have blood work done. Now they are considering him for the donor...?...Out of 5 matches (of DNA i guess) only two matched. We think the Dr.'s are getting desperate. This is taking a big risk, there is the chance of things not working out the way we hope and pray for. We will know more next week. Keep the Prayers coming.
Marge

Hi Marge, I'm new to DC but I've already learned so much from the awesome folks here. I have read this entire thread and my heart breaks for you and John and your whole family. Thank heavens you are such a tight-knit family but I know how exhausting this is for ya'll. You must be a wonderful woman to have so many friends here. It's been really inspiring to read the outpouring of strength and prayers and caring from the DC community to you and your family and I would like to add mine, as well. I'm sending my thoughts and prayers for John and hope that a great match is found tomorrow so that he can get transplanted soon. (If it's not one of his sons, will they be searching the marrow registries?) Anyway, post updates whenever you can and know that you've got another friend in Texas pullin' for all of you.
Love & Peace,
Terry

He went home from the hospital today. Now it is a waiting game..like waiting for the other shoe to drop.
Love Y'all

Hang in there Marge. Your son is a fighter. You all are in my thoughts every day.

I'm so glad to hear he's home for now. I'll be praying that he stays healthy and gets stronger while he's waiting for a match so he'll be in the best shape possible when he gets the transplant. And make sure John's mama gets some rest, too!
Peace & Love,
Terry

Marge, did either of the boys test out as a possible donor?

Continued prayers got out for all of you! I hope John gets some rest while he is home so he get stronger.
