Well, we got some really bad news early this morning. Larry's dad finally (what is UP with the VA hospitals?? ugh!) got back the results from his CAT scan and PET scan. His lung cancer has spread to his liver and his adenoids. It will likely move into the rest of his glands and/or his brain stem easily from the adenoids, and has probably already spread to his spine, this is suspected because he has had increasing back pain. Larry's mom is a wreck, Larry himself doesn't know how to deal with it at all. Being distanced geographically just makes it that much harder. At least when we went through this with my Grandma there were tangible, concrete things we could do to help out in little ways. Larry can't even talk to his dad about it because Dad just refuses to talk about it, period.

So, here we go again. This is only going to get worse, and end in his death. This is going to be so hard for Larry. So hard.

This pretty much eclipses anything else I might have to say right now, so I will just keep it to that and hopefully be back soon with a more normal less doom-and-gloom post. I can tell about how Barrett puked all over at the middle school choir concert last night! Something for you to look forward to, I'm sure.
