As many of you may know, Larry was diagnosed with 4th stage prostate cancer a few years ago. He has received radiation over the years as well as chemotherapy. His aggressive type of prostate cancer has now reached a point where Larry will be entering hospice care this week and will hopefully be able to stay at home. He is now in the hospital and has received radiation on his head to relieve the pressure of a growing tumor on his skull.
Larry said this morning that he is tired, not surprising. His son Andy just arrived and his son Kelsey has been here and will return tomorrow. Phyllis, a family relative, has been his caregiver, and will continue to do so when he comes home. Andy and Kelsey will determine what additional care he may need and the information will be posted on the Caring Bridge website or you may get a call or e-mail.
Gratefully, with the help and support of Larry's sons, his doctors and care team, his family and friends, Larry has had a good and loving engagement with all who have visited, sent notes and emails and called him through these past years. Today he is not in any pain. Just tired.
