Last night, I lathered John's head up and shaved him smooth. The barber was afraid to use a razor on him, in case he cut him. So I did it. John is VERY trusting! LOL Now he looks like Charlie Brown, although he thinks he looks like the Six Flags guy. I hope to be able to get back online with my own computer soon and will post pictures then.
It's funny that we seem to get so much closer whenever this rotten disease decides to rear it's ugly head. It's like we're crazy happy right now. Maybe we always are, but we're just more aware of it now.
I really resent the time we can't spend together. That will change soon. As soon as my youngest goes off to college at the end of August, we'll be able to spend more time together. I think she's also going to the beach with her friend's family this coming week and also flying to Seattle with her Dad at the end of July for a week. By the time Dani leaves for college, John will be in the middle of his transplant and in isolation until his white blood cell count gets back to normal levels. Then he'll be coming home with me.
I recently realized that one of the hardest parts of John being in isolation for a month is not being able to have any physical contact with him. We are a very physical pair... always holding hands, or rubbing a back, etc. I'm pretty sure that when I visit him I'll be gowned, gloved and masked. Not being able to touch him or kiss him is going to be very difficult. I suppose not being able to see him at all would be worse, so we'll make due with holding hands through gloves. But it ain't gonna be easy!!
