Larry Jones update

Larry's spirits are up, he is tired often, his pain is reduced enough that he only takes the meds if he needs to. He is staying away from public gatherings (such as church) because catching the flu would seriously compromise his health. He has lots of support and help--he is very blessed, ask him. He has no idea of where he is with the cancer. Feeling better he is hopeful that he is healed. He sees the doctor next week to get a better idea of his current state and what lay ahead. Keep the prayers a comin' before the Great Physician
