Treatment Begins

Hi Everyone,

Well we are back in Winnipeg. Earl saw his oncologist on Thursday and was admitted to St. Boniface Hospital yesterday. He is settled in and will begin his chemotherapy today. He is feeling a little (???) frightened but is easily encouraged. He loves to hear from the people who care about him, so if you have a minute to email, blog, or phone or if you have some time to visit he would love it. He does have a phone in his room and he is allowed visitors. He will be hospitalized for all his treatments and this one will keep him in for 6 days. This BLOG is to help communicate, but we still encourage you to phone and give us the pep talks needed to get through this tough time.
Take Care, and keep praying
Debbie, Darby and THE COOKER

Hello Earl, I am very sorry to hear that you have cancer but I know you are a fighter, you have already proven that to all of us who know you. Throughtout my entire career you have been the highlight! I am and have always been extremely proud of you. As a cancer survivor I understand first hand all the feelings that you will be feeling and know that what you are feeling is normal. I also know that having loving and supportive people in your life makes all the difference,beginning with Debbie and Darby is the greatest blessing. Keep hope alive and know that prayers are being sent out daily. I will come see you Thursday after work, if that's ok with you. You can call me during the day at 256-4301 x3361 or my cell 297-8271 after 4:30pm everyday and all day on the weekends. God bless, Cheryl A
