This entry will be short because I am in a lot of pain. My fibromyalgia is making me wrench in pain. Literally. And I'm not a baby. I need to do this entry quick and get in bed.
John and I are at Hope Lodge right now, in Hershey, PA. It's where cancer survivors and their caregivers stay when the survivor is receiving treatment, whether it be a hospital stay, or a simple check up at the Cancer Clinic.
John saw Dr. Claxton today. Dr. Claxton was absolutely thrilled at how John is doing. He told John that his persistence had finally paid off. He told him that although he had had two years of complications, it had been worth it because now he was going to be okay.
John and I were thrilled as we left the Cancer Clinic. It is finally starting to sink into our heads. John's really finally doing better and has hit a major landmark point in his recovery. We have finally come to a conclusion.
The conclusion we have come to is that John hasn't been this healthy in years. He's doing better than his preTransplant days. To have this finally happen is something that we have always hoped for, but weren't sure would come true. To stare this day in the face finally, John feels, he says, "happy and relieved." I would say it makes me feel "stunned and relieved." I had a great amount of faith for this day, but none the less, I am still stunned and in awe. Many don't make it as far as John has. Many of our friends didn't.
So praise God that John is doing well. God has a purpose for his life here on earth for a while longer.
So before I get off I wanted to say I fixed my computer yesterday. It took me 24 hours.
It was so frightening. I didn't think I would be able to fix my computer before it crashed. I also feared I would lose all my documents and photos.
I have never done any computer tech worklike this. I want to say thank you to Miss Tammy from Down Home, to my brother-in-law Tony, and Sean at Office Depot who all gave me free tech help. Then they let me loose to see what I could do.
It is amazing to find out what could be done after I learned some concepts. I was able to take the computer from a totally blank screen and get it into Systems Restore and then onto my regular desktop screen. Next I downloaded Adaware.
I ran Adaware and to my horror, I found out I had 3 Trojans, which had spawned 43 other viruses. No wonder my computer was shutting down. It also said I had 786 other "infections". I was horrified, and took the appropriate actions to rid my hard drive of these viruses.
Like I said, it was a 24 hour project. But I got rid of all the viruses.
I'm really excited to be back on line to be able to share with you all. I'm glad the problem was fixable.
Thanks for all your supportive comments yesterday.
Love, Krissy :)
