How wonderful Marge! That's the first good news in a while. I guess your grandson produced some mighty fine stem cells! And now John has gotten through 20 of his 100 days. If this keeps up, you're gonna have the best Christmas ever!
Love and Peace,
Terry

I'm surely late to this but I too join in the prayers and best wishes for John and you and the rest of the family.

Sandie arrived home last night. Christopher relieved her on Thursday morning. He will be there until Monday. Tim will go down Sunday.Chris has to be back to work by Tuesday.
Sandie asked for either Friday or Mondays off. The school Principal said no. During the time she had off the school went $12,000 in the hole. I asked "how?" She said she was the schools bookkeeper ( and secretary) Someone goofed...John still wants her down there on weekends. If someone takes her down on a Friday night it will be close to midnight before she gets there. Or else early Saturday morning (like 5:30) and come home Sunday eve. She is his security blanket. She has been with him almost 24/7 since last February 1st.

It takes a bus or someone drives her to downtown, and a train to San Jose and another train to Mountain View. then whoever is there will pick her up. About a 4 hour trip. So far her family hasn't offered to help.
Going on midnight so I think I'll go to bed.
Night all
Marge

Wonder how anyone could be such a Scrooge under these special circumstances. It's not like she's asking to go to Disneyland!

We'll all keep praying around here -- not just for John's continued improvement, but for understanding and help for the rest of you to keep on keeping on...

Love you... keep your chin (and your hopes) up!

Or, Marge, if we lived closer I'd be more than happy to help get Sandy to see John. Thank heavens she has your family for love and support--like June I hope she's able to get what she needs from her family and work soon!

Not knowing her family situation, this may not be appropriate, but tell her to flat out tell them she needs their help! Under the circumstances, she's allowed to be blunt and push to get what she and John need!

I went to see Sandie today to give her paul's cell phone so Tim would have on when he makes the trips to care for John. She is holding up very well for all she is going through, I'm proud of her.
I also learned that there is a spot or lump on John's lung...it is larger now than it was on the last CT Scan...Sandie hopes it is just scar tissue from all the bouts of Pneumonia he has had...but I don't think scar tissue grows..Lets Pray that it isn't cancer starting in another place.
