Hello Journal Peoples. It has been a few days since I have written an entry. Let's see, what's new with me?
Hmmm. Not a whole lot. I have been doing a lot of the same old same old. A lot of research concerning John. And a lot of going to doctor's appointments. For John and for myself.
I am going to start finding some fun activities to do so that I can keep my mind occupied and have some fun. Does anyone have any suggestions? What do you like to do?
John is feeling alright, except for feeling tired. He sleeps about half the day. He is in good spirits as long as he can keep his mind off the bone marrow transplant, but when he thinks about it, he feels sad and concerned (his words).
John has an appointment with an oncologist at Hershey Medical Center on July 28th. Hershey is supposed to be especially good at these bone marrow transplants. Please send up prayers and good thoughts for this appointment.
Also, remember when John had the kidney stone surgery? Well, the other day he went for an X-ray, and it showed that the stone broke up into many small pieces. But he has not been able to get rid of the pieces yet. They are all in the very bottom part of his kidney! To get out of the kidney they will have to move upward against gravity. His doctor wants him to lay on a slanted board with his feet in the air and his head towards the ground. If he does this fifteen to twenty minutes a day the gravity should help the fragments leave the kidney. First John needs to ask his oncologist if it will be okay to stand on his head (practically) before he does this treatment, lol.
Well, that's about it for now. I will write again soon.
Love you all, Krissy :)
