September 3, 2015 - Update:
Joe spent the last three days at Stanford. He had a Hickman catheter put in his chest. He also received an extremely high dose chemo to kill all good and bad in his body. Because of this, he is not allowed any visitors or flowers. I started his neupogen injections at home this morning which will help his bone marrow produce new stem cells - the doctors will be harvesting shortly. This will prepare him for the actual bone marrow transplant coming soon.
A lot of our friends have been asking if they could help in making meals, and believe me my mom sure wishes she could accept all your offers, but she has to cook all foods for Joe herself - Doctors orders. Joe is resting well at home. We sincerely appreciate all your offers and prayers. Please keep praying!
