Thank you for the update Mike; thoughts and prayers for DD. Do you know if there's anything we can do? Send some western DVD's to his hospital or anything?

Right  now I don't even know exactly where DD is.   He has moved to another facility in Nebraska.   He is now close enough for his Dad and step Mom to visit.    They are both nearly 95 years old and can't travel far.     I hope to hear where he is living soon.

Just got an update from Cheyenne,   DD4lifeusmc is still hanging in there.  He is in Hospice care in a VA facility near Omaha.

And being in Hospice means any pain is being managed effectively. Thanks Mike.
