Sorry I haven't been on ere for a few days. I've been at Johns for a few hours each day.
and have had my own Dr appointments .
John goes in each morning for blood draw. Then a few hours later he is called in for either blood, platelets or both.
Today he was very tired and very quiet. I knew he didn't feel well so I suggested he take a nap since he had to go in at 5 PM for platelets. So Kevin and I left.
He has a good size lump showing up on his arm and also in his stomach. It is the Leukemia the Dr said.
Plans were made quite a while ago for a Las Vegas trip with my sis and her husband ( he is a Dr from Ind. and has a conference so they have a time share and ordered a 2 bed room so my other sis, her daughter and I could be with them. It is next Thursday to the followng Monday. My Dr said " it is 11/2 hour flight..you would be as close as a phone call and the next plane out. He recommends I go.
I think I will play this by ear.
Dr also put me on Znax three times a day...LOL I took one night before last and last night and fell asleep here at the computer. I decided to talk 1/2 twice a day and one at bed time..just took one and am making lots of mistakes so I'll say good night for now.

May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

Dearest Marge: Thanks for the update. I have been anxiously eyeing the site looking for word from you.

Been thinking of you often, and sending you cyber hugs.

Hope you can see your way clear to go to Las Vegas with your sis. Perhaps the change of scenerly will lift your spirits just a little. You surely deserve it.


Wine is the food that completes the meal.

Deer Marge, Do go if you feel at all that you can. Please remember that you have to take care of yourself to be able to take care of your loved ones.

For once, I am at a loss for words. I don't know what I'd do in your situation. I do know that the stress of this crisis surely weirs (sp) you down. You and your family are constantly in our prayers. I only wish life was easier for you. I pray that you are given the strength to bear the heavy burden that has been put upon you. I would shoulder some of it if I could. I still don't know what to say. It's all been said before. So I will say this. Though we only have known each other through cyber-space, I do love and support you, as do all here who have been following this thread.

Dear Marge, you have a plate full and have been bravely shouldering a heavy load. It might do you some good to get away for a little while and recharge your batteries. Since you will be a short distance away, take the opportunity and take care of yourself.
