05-14-04  Hello everyone, this is an update on my wife Jackie.  This morning we got news that she has lukemia.  She is still in the hospital and will be going to Philadelphia either today, sat or monday.  Please keep her in your prayers.  Not only for the physical aspect of this whole thing but more for the spiritual.  There needs to be some changes in her life and this may be her wake-up call.

05-18-04  Hello Everyone, This is an update on my wife Jackie.  Monday was a bad day for her. Tuesday was much better.  There was a bone marrow test done Monday and we got the results today.  Jackie does have Lukemia and she has type M3.  What this means is if you are going to have Lukemia this type is the best to have.  There is an 80% recovery rate with this kind.  She will not have to have a bone marrow transplant.  She will be going under kemo and that started today.  This meds that she will be taking are not as strong as first thought.  Please continue to pray for her and her health.  Also please pray for my job situation.  I am normally out of town during the day and am gone from about 9 am to 10 pm.  My parents are taking care of the kids but i don't want them to get burned out with being with them all the time.  I am trying to switch jobs and get back into the store for better hours.  I have been turned down by the W-B store.  There are 2 others that are close by to work with.
