Toronto Update

Today is Monday and Earl has just had a biopsy. The team here is amazing and Earl is comfortable and making his way in to the hearts of everyone here. He is in recovery right now and will be coming down within the next 1-1 1/2 hours. Dr. Wunder has told me it is a sarcoma, but the specific type will not be known until we get the pathology report from the lab. That may or may not happen before we come back to Winnipeg. Earl will take a few days to recover and get back on his feet. He will probably have a few more tests before we come home, such as, a CT Scan and another Bone Scan. Take care and we would love to hear from you. Earl does have a phone in his room. Debbie & Earl

Hey Big guy,
How are you feeling? I bet I know what your answer to me will be.
"Great!", right??
Glad to hear that things are going well there. It's too bad we can't be there with you to come by and visit.
Were you able to get to a Leafs game?? Probably not, since you have been so busy. I heard they lost on Friday.
Keep your chin up and we will come by for a visit when you get back.
Take care and lots of love,
The Perrella Clan

Hey Earl,

Brian and I wanted you to know how much we've been thinking about you.

It sounds like you're handling everything they throw at you like the trooper that we know you are.

We hope you're able to get to see the Leafs before you come home.....we know how much you would love that.

Take care over the next few days and know that you will be in our thoughts and prayers.

With Love,

Brian and Elaine
