Sending you love and prayers during this difficult time. Love to John and Sandie, and the whole family, too. We view life from the temporal perspective, God's looks at it from the eternal perspective. Take comfort in the fact that God still sits on His throne and is still in control. I will keep praying for all of you.

Marge, I'm thinking of you and John and your family...
LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

For John

I am new on the site and just saw your posting about your son. All I can say is how sorry I am that this has happened to him. Shingles is a bear and well avoided by taking the preventative shot if possible..so I hope you had yours. As for the leukemia it's possible to identify somewhat as my 31 year old stepson was diagnosed a couple weeks back with Hodgkins Lymphoma. He didn't feel sick and was always skinny so this just happened to be picked up when he went to the doc with a sore throat. How long he has had it we don't know but I do believe that him working two jobs and not bothering to eat especially on a weekend were contributing factors..at 6' 4" he weighs 140. Now he has to gain weight before they can begin chemo...he is in DC and we are in Olympia WA.
Like some others on the site hereI don't believe in God, so I cannot say I'll pray for you, at least not in the more recognized forms but will send healing and strengthening positives your way. Hang in there dear...there spirit and strength and community wishing you and yours well.

Oh Marge! I am so sorry, I've been away for a week and was shocked at the changes in John's health. We will continue to send thoughts and prayers your way! {{{{{{{{[[[[[HUGS!]]]]]}}}}}}}} for you and your entire family. I'm so glad your sister is coming out - while you are an amazingly strong woman she will give you a safe and comforting place to lean when you need it.
I'm just lookin' for my "cheese"!
