Marge & Family;

John has been through much these past months. I seems almost unbearable for someone to go through something like this. I have seen such things, watched those who have made it through terrible trials, even such as those you are experiencing, and when it was over, they knew how to really enjoy their lives, their families, even the tiniest wonder of life, such as the beauty of a flower.

I pray, and have been praying for John's recovery, daily. I don't know that it is to be. Only our Father in Heaven knows that. I do know that whatever happens, you and John, and the rest of your family will have the Comforter with you, to strengthen you, and ease the pain. And if it is so that john does bounce back, which I'm sure he will, then he will have such an appreciation for life, that he will be a new man. He will be a blessing to all of you in so many new ways.

You know, I've been keeping up with the thread since its inception. And in that time, I've come to respect and love you and your family as freinds, and as brothers and sisters. You have never seen me, nor heard my voice. I hope you can understand the sincerity of my words, written to you accross cyber-space. And likewise, I pray that the Comforter bears witness to you of the love from all of your freinds here at DC, and especially from our Heavenly Father.

I will continue to pray.

Hi Everyone,
Things are moving along pretty well. Tim has gone through the stem cell harvesting and is now recovering from the side effects.

When we arrived here last Wed., John was dependent on 2 liters oxygen and wasn't walking much. We were using a wheelchair most of the time. Now his oxygen saturation is 97-98 and he is breathing regular air (no tanks, hoses etc.). His legs are sore from walking everywhere. The wheelchair has been parked in the room for two or three days.

Write soon!
May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

Walk towards the Sunshine and the Shadows will fall behind you!

Oh Marge, does this mean that John's pnuemonia is resolving? And does that then mean he may be able to receive the transplant on schedule? I sure hope so and I'm praying even harder for ya'll. I know you and Sandie must be so worn out with worry and lack of sleep so I'm praying for you girls, too. Keep us posted.
