Earl was so excited on Sunday at his baptism, even commenting that it was the best decision he has ever made. He confidently stood up in front of a full church and shared his faith story, and I even heard a story of a woman having to share her tissue with the man beside her. Needless to say Earl has a strong and powerful story to tell, and watch out when he has an audience.
Earl also spoke at a team building conference for the City of Winnipeg last Wednesday and did a fabulous job encouraging participants as they get ready to launch the summer programs of Parks and Rec in our city. He even got a standing ovation.
Well, chemo does continue and Earl was really not looking forward to the end of two great weeks off. He reluctantly reentered the hospital to start his 2nd last treatment before we go to Toronto. He had a rough night on Monday, and was a little sick and when he woke up in the morning was cold and had a little fever and a higher WBC (white blood count) They took a chest x-ray in the afternoon to check his lungs, but thankfully it was clear. They started a round of antibiotics and delayed his treatment. It will hopefully happen to day, so please say a little prayer, as we don't want to get to far behind.
Take care and keep in touch.
