Follow Up Appointment

I wanted to give you all an update on John.  John and I went to the Physician's Assistant and the oncologist today (Thusday).  The oncologist decided John should get an appointment with a specialist at NIH in DC to find a bone marrow transplant match.  The specialist wants to match John with a relative.  We don't know how this is going to work out as John is adopted.

If John can't find a bone marrow transplant match through NIH, he is going to have to find a bone marrow transplant donor nationwide.  He will be put on the bone marrow transplant registry.

Well, that is about it for now as far as John goes.

I am feeling a little better today.  I am being more proactive.  

Tomorrow we are going to do something fun.  We have two movies that we rented from Holywood Videos.  One is "It Could Happen To You" and the other is "What's Eating Gilbert Grape".  The first one is based on a true story of a man who promises a waitress that if he plays the lottery and wins he will give her the money.  And he does!  That should be interesting!  Anything for a laugh!

Well, gotta run.  All my love, Krissy

  9. The specialist is good....will continue to pray that the bone marrow doner  thing works out. Is there any way he could get ahold of his adoption papers ..being it is a medical reason and see if there is a posibility they might be a donor match........good luck on the nation wide search. I cant afford to be tested to be a donar..I thought it was free, or I would do it.......will be prayingfor you both..............................Kasey

    I have been constantly praying for you a John.  You were especially in my prayers at the  Adoration Chapel.  God will find a way...HIS WAY!!  I know you are forever under his watchful eye.  St. John the Evangelist...pray for us.  -Kellen

  16. wow how fast does he need the transplant?  will he have time to seek out his birth family or siblings? or is that out of the question?  Praying for you both.

  21. Thanks for your comment and concern about my health.  I have the TV off and am doing housework and listening to the Grateful Dead.  Doing housework never felt so good, now that I am up on my feet again.   Many blessings  -mark-
