Wow, I didn't realize it had been so long since I posted last. Life has changed considerably in the past 6 months. Mom passed on January 10th, 2017 which happened to be Larry's birthday. We were by her side & even though we are so sad for our loss we are so very happy she is free of pain & with our Lord.

Larry has been undergoing immune therapy IV drips to fight his cancer. Unfortunately, they were not effective, so just this past week we decided to discontinue them. The side effects were really knocking him down & his pain level increased daily. Plus he got an infection, started bleeding internally which required a 5 hour transfusion and developed colitis & emphysema during that same time frame. Really? Like it wasn't miserable enough. He is such a strong, amazing man & continues to maintain a positive attitude through it all.

We weren't able to leave last month for our usual summer location which of course is in the Black Hills of South Dakota. 11 summers in the same campground, same site. Oh my, how we miss it! On the plus side, we are flying into Rapid City the last week of July & spending a week in a cabin at Custer Mountain Cabins & Campground with all of our friends nearby! We are beyond excited!

We were in Las Vegas for a week with family over the 4th of July & enjoyed spending time with them. We hope you had a lovely weekend as well. Thanks for stopping by, we appreciate all of you so much :)
