Four more weeks here

Hi ya'll.  I thought I would do an entry before I went to bed.  I just wanted to let everyone know that the plans regarding John have changed once again.  He was discharged from the hospital tonight.  But instead of going home and getting care from a nurse at home where we live, John and I will be staying in Hershey for four weeks.  Yes, I said weeks, not days, LOL.  He will be going to Day Hospital during the day and then coming back to stay with me at Hope Lodge at night, just like when he had the bone marrow transplant.  I know four weeks is a long time, but I am glad that the hospital made this decision.  I like the fact that they will continue his care at the hospital.  It is the best place to do it.  And he is still having some complications and his counts are still low.  He is still kind of weak.  And he needs his anti-viral medication everyday for the next four weeks.  So I think all around this is the best way.  I wasn't prepared for this, but it is ok.  When they first told us, I was pretty shocked, but I do feel good about it now...

Hope everyone is doing well.  Krissy :)

    It's the best place for John to be while he's still not fully recovered. I know you have fairh in the team there so it's good to still be under their care. Prayers going out for John's complete recovery. Jeannette xx

    four weeks will fly and if the hospital are seeing him on a daily basis, they will pick up anything going wrong really quickly and there will be no more episodes of you being without John at all.........take care and god bless both of you............Jules xx

  13. Hi Krissy,  Like you say, being right by the hospital is for the best.  At least it will take some of the stress of off you knowing your close by.  I`m sure the four weeks will go quickly and you and John will be home again. Take care, :o)

    Love and Hugs

  18. It's a relief knowing John is getting proper care. His medical care caused you worry at home and you weren't getting enough back up. At least this way, you will be looked after a bit too. Wish I could be there for you, would take the first flight over if it were possible - guess you already know that my special friend. God Bless you both. Lots of love.

  20. Yes, John is probably in the best place right now.  Try not to get discouraged, I know it's rough being away from home, but think of the bright side if you can.  I'm praying for you both.  'On Ya' - ma

  23. I am sure it will make things better considering the level of care he needs.   He will be getting to be outdoors for a little bit which I think he will enjoy.    It should make for a more comfortable living situation having the movement away from the hospital to your temporary home.     Hope you find some fun things to do.    mark

  34. Hi, been sent the link for your journal and i wanted to say good luck to you both and no one said it was going to be easy, life can be one cruel world.It sends us things to test us and the fact that you are still here and being made to feel all sorts of emotions is a great achievment. You are one of the strongest people i have ever heard from. You have all the support from people that care about you, more than you will ever know. No one will blame you for taking time out and feeling down. Just remember that you need help just as much as John does.
    I wish you all the very best in the world and my thoughts are with you both
    Take care hun
    Sandra xx
