Joe Update

Well, unfortunately its not good :(
Recently posted on Facebook by Janet Sperber who is currently in Seattle:
Yesterday, Joe really showed signs of his decline. Sores and rashes all over legs and back due to Leukemia. Pain meds every two hrs. This past weekend he did great. We had him out in the sunshine in a wheelchair during BBQ hosted by Elk's Lodge. Yesterday, he was mostly in bed. At this point doctors trying too keep him comfortable. He is aware we are here. No solid food over two weeks. He is dying.
With a followup from Joe's daughter Shana:
This is Shana, my dad is declining rapidly. I will be going back up to be with him tomorrow.
