I will continue to pray for you and John and your family. The power of prayer is amazing - give it to Him. Hugs to you Marge, lots of hugs.

Marge, it is so hard to believe this diagnosis considering John himself says he feels stronger than before. Keep the faith Marge. Doctors are not perfect, they make mistakes. I will say a prayer for you, John, and your entire family.

Marge I am so sorry. I have been away from the board for a bit so I was stunned to read what the doctor said, especially in light of how much better John has been feeling.

Our thoughts and prayers will continue to be with you, along with lots of big hugs.

(My ex has been diagnosed with lung cancer. He's just completed his 2nd round of chemo and is feeling great. He's going camping this weekend, is planning trips next week with our daughter and granddaughter. While he's doing so great his son is running around announcing that people with cancer die (guess he doesn't know I'm a survivor). I told our daughter to tell him to can it and start thinking and talking positively. A good attitude and positive thoughts go a long way toward healing.)
I'm just lookin' for my "cheese"!

The power of positive is never to be overlooked. My Uncle had cancer and was given 6 weeks to live, that was over 5 years ago and he is healthy, happy, and enjoying his life. I hope for nothing but the best for you and your family.

I have watched members of my family die, but not one of my children. I have also seen miracles happen where doctors had given up hope. So no one really knows what's going to happen. I will be praying for you and John as I have been. And know that our hearts and hopes are with you.

Marge, do not give up hope. The doctors have been struggling with his diagnoses all along. They are STILL not sure. There are so many of us praying for John and I know that you've been through so much, but we are with you dear lady. We are praying for his recovery and while there is life and faith, there is hope.

Never give up hope. Believe in the certainty of God's love and work in your lives. We will all be praying for you at my house too.

John's bone marrow has shut down, we are waiting for his lung biopsy appointment..the cancer cells are back and whatever is going on in his lung is growing.
Hospice met us at his home today. She explained what they do and when she came to the part of "end of life" tears were flowing from his eyes..I haven't seen him cry since he was little. Kevin said he did at his dad's services..
John told the lady he isn't ready for hospice yet. he wanted to continue with Kaiser Hospital for now.
My sister is flying out from Indiana Sunday..I told Sandie she wanted to come out but I was afraid it would worry John if she did..she did Paul's service and she flew out in Feb, when John had only a 5% chance of pulling through. Sandie talked to John and they called her and said "y'all come" i think he is concerned about me. He is worrying about all of us..I told Kevin to tell him tomorrow that "Mom is strong..don't worry about her"....a little white lie won't hurt..will it? They are having a Family Trust Lawyer come out tomorrow..he is putting things in order. Kevin will be there earlier in the morning to go through some cupboards with John.John wants him to take anything he wants...
May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.
