He's coming to Seaside!

Cal spoke with John Monday night and here's his report.

JC gets out of St. Vincent's in Beaverton and off dialysis as of TODAY.
Later in the day he'll be transfering to Seaside Providence for a period of rehabilitation- the length of which is unknown. BUT, he'll be a mile away from his home for Christmas.
Yesterday he talked with two of his ICU docs. A Resident at St. Vincent's said when John came in, he was the sickest patient he'd ever treated. The other doctor said JC was most certainly in the top 10% of the most ill he has ever treated. Today , JC comes back , closer to home turf, not bad for a patient that was at one time, "the sickest person in the entire hospital". Let's give JC and his family some privacy over the Holidays and then we'll update Blog readers when we see some light at the end of the tunnel for his Seaside-based rehab.

  3. What wonderful news, I am so happy for all of you! There is nothing better than being "home", even if home is still in a hospital...you have come so far, John, and while there is still a long road to climb, you're on your way and I am certain the future is looking bright. All best wishes to you and your family this Holiday season, we will continue to hold you in our thoughts and prayers. Hugs, Melody and Kari Virding (Miss Oregon 2007)
