John is doing quite well!

Hey ya'll.  It has been a long time.  I finally am ready to update this journal.  As most of you know, I have been away in Hershey, PA with my husband while he got a bone marrow (stem cell) transplant for the bone marrow cancer he had.  Well, we are still here, but we are hoping to be able to come home soon.  I don't know how much longer it is going to be.  He is getting treated for Graft Verses Host Disease.  Graft Verses Host Disease is when the donor rejects the person who received the transplant.  But John doesn't have GVHD too severely.  Actually, John is doing quite well.  So hopefully we will be able to come home soon.

I am so thankful that John got this second chance at life.  Without it he would not have made it.  It really looks like he is going to make it.  Please continue to pray for him.  Thanks.  :)

I will give more of an update at a later time, and add some pictures.
