I'm here, sort of

Hi! Just wanted to let everyone know that I've been busy and not near a computer (can you say bad withdrawl??). John doesn't have internet access at his place so we're at the local library.

Plans are in place for the next chemo treatment, PET scan and 15 days of Neupogen shots (4 a day ouch!) to get his body ready for the stem cell harvest, the BIG chemo treatment, and finally the transplant. I'll post more about it in a few days when I have the time to sit down and think about what I'm writing.

He's lost 7 lbs so far. I coudn't see it but his doctor could. He's also starting to lose his hair. I did take before shots and will probabl take some bald ones too. He's being a good sport about it. :)

Anyway, I'll be back in a day or so.

Ah, Joanie; I'm not sure I could be as upbeat about all of this as you are.

You rock girl. He's a lucky, lucky man.

That's got to be rough... on the positive side.. bald men ARE sexy!

You are all still in my prayers

You guys are still in my prayers. I'm sure you miss the computer. . . I would. We miss you too!
Dizzy Blonde has a point, bald men are sexy! Ul Brener was the sexiest bald headed man I have ever laid my eyes on! After that, it has to be. . . LL COOL J. . . yes, straight from the pastor's mouth! What? We think people are sexy too!

You sound very upbeat and that's good. You guys are so lucky to have one another.
I, along with everyone else, am thinking of you both.

John and I can compare notes on the baldness front. Thing is... his will probably grow back and mine? Jury is still out.

You are doing so remarkably admirably well, Joanie. Stay strong and lean on the knowledge that all your blog friends are hear holding you up in spirit.

We love ya girlfriend.

Hi Joanie,
My name is Joany too! Except of course spelled with a 'y'!
Just found your blog tonight. You are very positive, from what I've read so far. Good for you. Keep it up.
Nice to meet you by the way!

Thanks everyone for the great great vibes I'm getting! I'm hoping to have my internet back up in a few days. In the meantime, I'm at Burger King, using their free internet! Stupid Comcast wants money every month or they shut you down. lol I should be able to pay it by the beginning of the week. I'm making changes to cell phones and internet/cable to lower my bills as much as possible.

It's funny, even in the face of what lies ahead, we're crazy happy. We're also VERY positive that he's going to beat this thing. He says cancer should know better than to mess with a paratrooper!
