John was recently diagnosed with primary amyloidosis which has impacted his kidneys and other organs. We have greatly appreciated all of the support from friends and family and thought this site would help keep everyone in the loop. I wish I had known about it when all of this started! I may have been able to get information out to everyone more quickly. We do hope it helps as his treatment moves forward. Feel free to visit the site for updates and leave messages for him too. Please look at the first journal entry for a summary of the last few weeks if you are not yet familiar with what has gone on the last several weeks. Once again - we do appreciate everyone's prayers, good wishes, help and support!
