Hi All.
The amount of time that I have been spending emailing, texting etc, has gotten overwhelming, so we found this site and let see how it goes.
We will start today June 15th, 2017. Linda and I are just unreeling from our trip to MD ANDERSON Cancer center in Houston Texas. 
The news we received totally rocked our world. We had been believing the cancer had shrunk and was possibly a candidate for removal surgery. But we were told the cancer has spread to most vital areas of her body. The Doctors at MD Anderson prescribed a new chemotherapy drug that might give her some time but after reading and studying on this drug Linda and I decided not to do to chemotherapy, but to live out her last weeks as free from nausea and sickness as we can. 
We entered Linda in the hospice and palliative care program today, it was very hard with Linda being a hospice nurses to do this. We have assemble a great team to help us with all the decisions that will need to be made. We spent most of this week working with our attorney and CPA on all the details, transferring property, names, bank accounts, etc.
We spend Wednesday evening with all of the kids, and grand-kids on the Colorado National Monument, doing family pictures, then Linda and I went to what we call our happy spot to take some pictures of us, A big thank you to friend Bob and Lori Inglehart  a photographer buddy of mine.
We are doing our best to keep Linda at home for a few more days before being admitted to the hospice care center. 
We are getting many request for visitors and trying our best to accommodate everyone, so please text me and let us know if you would like to visit us at home. Larry 970-812-6812. Once she enters the care center there will not be many visitors that can come as she is there to rest and manage pain.
We set up this page since we are no longer doing the email thing, just takes to much time. Prayers are welcome and appreciated,
I'm not going to say if she has a week, a month or longer, we just do not know.
Blessing to all.
