John is fighting as hard as he can..it is from day to day..He is on Chemo drip 24/7 and is in a lot of pain. He is taking blood and platelets all the time. when he is awake he is delirious. Very seldom alert to hold a conversation. He is hooked up to so many IV's that I don't know what all they are. Kevin and Christopher (Johns son )are with him from 10 AM to close to 9 PM. Kev is on his feet all the time either wiping the blood from his nose and using a suction thing to keep his mouth clear of blood too. He is so good and if he tells him he is going outside for some air John says "don't leave me Kevin, don't leave" His wife Sandie comes in for the night watch. They are all so tired they are just exhausted.

Dear Marge,

Just be as strong as you can be and know that everyone at DC is pulling for you and your whole family. Getting closer and closer to Monday and more promise. Lots of love and hugs are sent your way.

Love,

Katie E and Buck

Marge,
How hard this is for all of you. But as ill as he is, deep down, John knows his sons are there and he knows all the others he loves are there as well. That must bring him so much comfort. How heart warming to see such deep love your family has for each other.
hugs to all of you,
kadesma

Marge:

Just got back and read this thread.

I wish I could be there and give you a big hug. Your son is in our thoughts.

Update

I just got off the phone with Marge. She's exhausted to say the least! I am disheartened to say that it now appears the docs give John a 5% chance of making it. They have him in a paralyzed state so he doesn't keep trying to pull everything out. He knows what's going on but obviously cannot speak due to the tubes. The doctor said he's never seen such a fighter. The doctor stayed up all night praying in John's room - that's some doc, huh?

She could sure use some more prayers - she's got mine.

I'm pulling for John, Marge - so is The Bear! He sends his best and he sends bear hugs.

Thanks for the update, Vicky. I just sent an email to her. Don't know when she'll look at it but at least she'll know those of us at DC are thinking about her. What a rotten deal! She's certainly had a lot on her plate the last several months.

Makes me appreciate the smallest blessing even more. God love her.
