A support tag for John

I just got back from the hospital with John.  He got an IV antibiotic treatment for the infection in his arm.  He has three more Vanco treatments to go.  Yesterday he had his 16th chemo treatment.  Hopefully he will get a break from that for awhile.  We will see. 

I want to thank everyone for their wonderful support they have given John.  Chris made John a support tag: 


I put it in my Sidebar (All About Me Section).  If you would like, you can put it in yours also.  It is to remind others to pray for John.  Maybe you could write something like this under it:  Please pray for John.  He is fighting cancer.  

If you would like you can also link it back to this journal.  Linking back is easy.  To do it all you have to do it this:  Hit the Edit button under your All About Me Section.  Add the graphic.  Write whatever words you want to write under the graphic.  Then highlight the graphic.  Do this by passing the cursor over the graphic from right to left.  When it is highlighted, reduce your journal for a second, put it at the bottom of the page.  Then go to the journal or journal entry you want to link to the graphic (for instance, if you want to link "SometimesIThink" to John's graphic, go to SometimesIThink journal).  When you are at this journal, copy the address that is in the browser.  Do this by right clicking and selecting "copy" OR "select all" then "copy".  Then X this journal out.  Come back to your All About Me Section.  Click on the little globe (which is next to the camera, which is next to spell check).  Paste the address in the "Script Prompt" by right clicking (go down to paste and then right click) and then hit OK.  Then press Save.  This should take you out of your All About Me Section.  The graphic should now be linked to whatever journal you linked it to.  Try it out!  I hope this explanation helped somebody out!

By the way, if you check out my All About Me section, there are two other cancer survivor tags (one for Sugar and one for Jeannette) that you can also snag and put in your sidebars if you would like. 

Thank you so much Chris, for the tags you have been making for survivors.

On another note, my sleep test was cancelled once again.  Grrrrrrrrrr.  Don't know if I have apnea, narcolepsy, what.  And there may be some insurance issues I have to work out now, as well as where I will take the test.  Gee, this thing has bee rescheduled so many times.  Last time it was because I was in Hershey.  Time before that was because of a humongous snowstorm.  Speaking of snowstorms, it is supposed to snowstorm again tommorrow, LOL.  It has been like 75 degrees lately, but the temp suddenly plummeted today.  I can't wait till Spring really arrives.

Okay, must run, Love you all, Krissy :) 


  1. I've not forgotten you, hon. I'm having computer problem, a glitch of some sort that is making it difficult to enter the tags. Will get to it soon as i can.

  2. Oh Krissy, Thanks so much for the update.  I take my "hat" off to you.  You are doing a great job coping with all this.  I admire you and am praying for you  as well as John.  It was great to hear what's going on. And thanks for the info. about how to use the support tags.  Hugs & Love, Merry

  13. Here comes Susie Snow Flake... so it's snowing!  So nice of you to put directions on how to put the tag in, Krissy.  I got up very late again today.  I am catching up on sleep I guess.  I love you, honey!!  Give John and Michael a big hug and kiss from me!  Love, ytp xox

  14. Hugs and prayers for you and John.  I am sorry the sleep test was cancelled yet again.  I know waiting is stressful.  I have just finished my third week with a CPAP machine and still adjusting.
    loving you

  16. Hi Krissy,  I`ve just copied the tag and will link it back to your journal so it can be seen by my readers. My prayers are with John, Jeannette and Sugar as they do battle against this dreadful disease.

    Love Sandra xxxx

  17. I have copied tag and tried it in my test journal but the url too long for the about me side panel.  I will have to practice.

    Many many prayers...I love you both so much!!!

  20. Krissy,
    As always prayers continue.  I will try to put the tag on mine too.  Hugs, LU

  21. My friend Meg said that the curves God throws us with the weather is proof that He is in control. :o)  I like that.  Sorry you had to cancel your sleep study. Sounds like someone is sleeping on their job (sorry but I had to try to be punny...LOL.). hope John's through with the chemo for a while. Can't believe he's had 16 already.  
    Take care of yourselves.  Surely the snowstorm will be shortlived.
    Hugs & Prayers, Barb  

  22. That's a beautiful tag and I will put it in my sidebar.
