 Thanks for checking in on Larry in Minnesota!
We'll try to post updates but we're not exactly blog savvy.  

Larry started this active Multiple Myeloma  (cancer of plasma cells-) chapter in December 2016 with the diagnosis. Doctors agreed that a Stem Cell Transplant is the route to take.  In January he started about 4 months of lower dose chemo to "kill off the weeds in his lawn."  We were able to "spot treat his lawn" in Kansas.   Now that they (weeds/bad plasma cells) are under control we needed to head to Mayo in Rochester MN for the next steps (BMT - Blood & Marrow Transplant). We would love to be at home in Kansas for this but  it was not in our control.  So after a full evaluation to determine if his body is strong enough to handle a transplant...we got the green light.  He is in great shape ..."an absolute specimen",  per Alex.  Next  they will help him "produce seeds to grow his  new lawn"......... then,  "harvest the seeds"........then, " nuke the lawn
 (a little bit of Round-up should do 😉  Jk).......then, "plant the seeds " .....and then wait until the seeds take hold in his bone marrow to start the production of  new red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, etc.
