For family and friends

Monday, September 29, 2008

Adam's health has steadily declined over the last week. We called Hospice today and will follow up with them tomorrow. They will most likely bring over a hospital bed tomorrow and take over with the management of Adam's pain. Adam's spirits and sense of humor are still there. He played a mean game of Dungeons and Dragons, with Bill's help, against Mac, John, Bill and family friend John Garrison. Bill said Adam made several snide comments that cracked everyone up. John and Mac are taking the news very hard. They get comfort from the dog. Poor Jack will probably be bald by the end of the week from all of the petting. Thanks to everyone for all of your support.
