John Speaks for Himself (by John)

Hello, all:

This is John. Just a brief update on me tonight, as there is not a whole lot to say.
What is happening right now is slow recovery. The mild congestive heart failure and the chemotherapy have made me weak (starting in July), and recovery is a slow process. I'm just working on gaining strength, and as you all know, that's slow, tedious work.
Later this week should provide a good test of how far I've come. Joan and I will be flying down on Thursday afternoon to see our foster daughter, son-in-law, and grandkids in Key Largo, Florida. This visit will involve the longest time I have been away from home since I was in the hospital in late July, and will be full of activities, interpersonal interactions with someone other than Joan, and a good deal of walking. I'm interested to see how I will do with all this. We will be returning on the 20th.
That's about it for now. My second chemotherapy went well last week. Thanks for all your continued love and prayers.
