John's Out

John's out of the hospital.  Finally!  He got out Tuesday at noon.   It's good to have him back.  He's glad to be back.  He hated the hospital food, lol.

It looks like the transplant is on.  He got a letter yesterday in the mail saying to come to the pre-transplant appointment.  That will be on Dec. 22. 

That should prove to be a big day.  John will get labwork done, have an examination by Dr. Claxton, and listen to a consent speech and sign for consent.  Then we will meet with a psychiatrist who will talk to John some.  Then we will meet with a social worker.  And finally we will go over to Hope House to get some things straightened out.  It will be a tiring day, as Dr. Claxton (the oncologist) spends between one to three hours with each of his patients.  He is very thorough!  That is one of the reasons we love him.  Oh, and we will meet with Ruth, Dr. Claxton's nurse, also.  We have some questions for her.     

Well, I guess this is enough chatter for tonight.  I am tired.  Did I tell you all I have 59 categories of things I have to do before it is time to leave for John to get the transplant?  I can't remember if I did or not.  Just thinking about it makes me tired, and I feel like I am falling behind, lol.  I felt better when I had the whole month of December.  Now time is slipping away from me.  I had so many other things I had to do last week instead.  Oh well, I know I will get lots done this week!

Ok, well hope everyone is doing well!  I am doing great, because John is home and doing well, and on schedule for the BMT.  I am just grateful for that!

Love you all, Krissy :)

  2. So glad that John is home.  Yes, that day is going to be a very tiring day but well worth it.  Sounds like he has a wonderful medical team.

  5. I was just thinking of you yesterday, Krissy, wondering if John was home. I'm so glad he is!!!

    How are you feeling? Its been busy here so I'm sorry I haven't emailed you. If you have a chance, read my journal entry "I messed up big time, but He still loves me". Its about the Lord :)

    Its so hard to feel stressed with what you have to do. Take it one chore at a time and then concentrate on the next one etc. Easier said than done, I know.

    Love you!
