Update From Krissy

iJust checking in with you all.  I hate to say it, but John is in the hospital.  At Hershey Medical Center where he had his bone marrow transplant.  The cancer is not back, but he is having complications from the transplant.  Or perhaps the PICC line.  The PICC line is something that was put in his arm so that he can receive chemo when he needs it (for the Hemolytic Anemia), as well as blood, or antibiotics.  It is also used to draw blood from his arm, because he frequently needs a lot of labs drawn.  Anyway, at this time the oncologists are thinking that the PICC Line is infected and that the infection has gone into his blood, because his fever is a little bit high.

I am staying at Hope Lodge (near the hospital).  The times I am not with John at the hospital, I go there.  Please don't send us any mail there yet, unless I ask you.  I need to find out if this is going to be a prolonged stay or not first.  I would hate for you to send a letter and we had already left.  I am hoping this will be a short stay.  It could be a few days or a few months.  Who knows.  But I will let you all know as soon as I know.  

I don't know what else to say.  I didn't know that he could still have complications after he was cured.  Boy am I having a rude awakening here.  Maybe I knew but chose not to think about it.  I am really tired.  I still have lots of faith, and am trusting in God, and leaning on you all, and my family.  But I am somewhat tired.  But I am hanging in there.

Okay, I need to go to lunch now, then get back to John.  I'm hoping for your prayers again, as we have seen they do work miracles.

Love you all, Krissy
