Oh Marge. This must just be devastating for all of you. After everything John and the rest of you have been through, to be told you must start all over again. My heart just breaks for all of you. I know you are a strong family and will meet this latest thing head on but for now, lean on your friends here and each other. We all love you and are holding you in our hearts.
Terry

Comment: I feel helpless and yet angry at the same time and don't know how you, John, and your family manage to cope. Much DC support and caring are here to envelope you with strength for your precious family to manage the uncertain future. Please, Marge, keep us posted when you can.

Marge,

I am so sad for John, Sandie, the boys, and you regarding this disappointing news. Continued prayers for all of you. Being at home surrounded by his loved ones will fortify John in body, mind, and spirit. That's important for his well-being.

At times like this when we wonder why and when nothing makes sense we can lean on the Everlasting Arms for comfort and strength....

Much love to you, Marge!

I don't know how to say this because my heart is breaking,,,
Sandie called Kevin and I (three way call) They talked to the Dr today and none of the news was good. He said what they think is going on in his lung is a fungus and the past treatments were not the right ones. What he needs to have will destroy his kidneys. They will do a biopsy as soon as they can. The cancer cells are back and they can't do Chemo anymore. Dr suggested in about two weeks they contact Hospice.....
Sandie will try to get a e-mail out soon..I might not have all the facts straight. It was so hard to try to remember what she said.
Dear God Why????
Marge

Dear, Sweet Marge.

Your DC Family will all get together and join hands in cyberspace and pray for a miracle.

We love you, and are all hoping for the best for John.

I am sending you prayers and hugs right now...

Marge, I'm so sorry. I can't think of the right words to say right now.

Dear Marge, thank you for sharing through the tears. I wish I could be there even though I'm not a great Hospice volunteer. Tonight I go to a family with lung cancer, depends on whether or not I have flue - woke up this morning not feeling the best.

I don't understand the two week wait to call Hospice. At least they should bring some comfort. Remember, some Hospice organizations, while "not for profit", do charge. I assume there are some there like the one I belong to that do not.

Dear God, Bless John and the family,
David
