Hi all,

I'll save the details for when I have energy. The bottom line is that the radiation for the tonsil cancer kicked the ESLD into high gear. The trips to the ER with a week in hospital each time. Now that I'm out, I catch every illness floating around. And around here, there are plenty.

PG and Joann - thanks for your notes. They got me this far in getting back in touch.

I hope that you are all doing well.

Be well, John

John, I am so very glad to finally hear from you!  We have all been so worried.  So thanks for letting us know what's going on.  You sound like you had a very rough time, indeed.  Is the feeding tube out now or do you still need it?  PLEASE dress warmly and avoid crowds whenever possible!  Eat a lot of fruit and maybe have some some V8 juice, as well as OJ.  Take Vit. C!  These are the things that I've done to avoid getting sick.  I never did get my flu shot this year.

I hope you will start feeling a little better each day.  What do your doctors have to say?

Again, thanks so much for posting!  Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with you.

Hugs,

OMG OMG OMG

You have made my YEAR  2009 is going to be good.  I can just feel it.  I am so glad to hear from you.  I'm sure it has been hard for you but I know you are so strong.  Stay strong because it will get you through this.  Your strength has got me through at time.  Thank you again for checking in.  Please give more info when you are feeling better.  I can't wait to tell Joelene she will be so excited.  She fell trying to put an Angel on top of her tree.  Broke three ribs, and really messed up her knee.  She is now inactive and was getting to the top of the list.  I have faith she will get back on top soon.  I sure hope you have some happy music tonight.

PG I was concerned about JOhn also.  I just need a JOhn fix every now and then.  Every night I try to think of what music he must be listening to.  John could you just say hi.  I hope you are well.
