This is a blog that we have started to keep all of our friends and family updated on dad's progress so that we don't end up telling the same story over and over ;) - Thanks for coming and check back often I am REALLY making an effort to update it each and every day! Thank you all for all of your love, prayers, and support!
Dad is having to receive replacement blood and platelets every day - sometimes TWICE a day and if anyone is willing to donate in his name we would GREATLY appreciate it!! The only way to donate for him is AT MD Anderson in Houston - there are 2 locations available and making an appointment is STRONGLY suggested- and make sure you specify which location you want to use as the number is the same for both - which is 713-792-7777. And OF COURSE don't forget to tell them that you are donating specifically for Melvin Larsen and that he is currently inpatient post-stem cell transplant! Here are the locations - feel free to email/ text me if you have ANY questions at ALL! :)

As most of you have already heard my brave and courageous father has gone Home to be with the Lord. We are all so sad that this was the final outcome to this long and difficult journey, but we are trying to gain strength from knowing that he is now in Heaven with the Lord and will no longer have to suffer or fight. He passed on Oct. 16th about 10 minutes before midnight- Mom, Dan, Kay, Bradley, and I were all with him and it was a very peaceful passing. We would like to share with you the details for the final arrangements.
