This is going to be short.
Dr. Claxton called John and me tonight (Friday) at home to tell us that the MDS is back. Yes, John's MDS (bone marrow cancer) has returned. At least Dr. Claxton is almost positive. Sure enough to call us and tell us it is so. He said he discovered it from the bone marrow biopsy he did on John Tuesday of this week. Dr. Claxton is waiting for the results of two other tests to pinpoint things more exactly. Those results will be in within the next two weeks. Dr. Claxton said we would then "take it from there". He said John is going to have to have another bone marrow (stem cell) transplant.
Gee, I am numb. Maybe that is good. I don't think I want to feel too much right now.
I do have some sadness, but it is for John. Somehow it doesn't seem right that he has to go through this again. I wish for his sake he didn't have to. I do know that the Lord will get us through. I know there are reasons for everything. But part of me just wishes he could have a break.
I want to ask for prayers for John, but that makes me feel selfish, because I ask far too often. I ask for prayers for healing for him, but foremost, God's will. And most of all I ask for peace to reign in his soul, and that he not be afraid.
Thank you and I love you all, Krissy
