Earl has a various serious infection in his leg, and I have just now gotten home Friday 7:00 pm from being at the hospital(s) with him since Tuesday evening. He is going to have surgery tomorrow that will involve washing away the infected skin, and tissue etc and may also involve changing of some of the movable parts of his prosthesis. After the surgery he will recover in hospital and then hopefully chemo will resume. He will be on IV antibiotics for 6 weeks and then there will be a wait to see if any more infection surfaces, if so we will likely be traveling to Toronto. I am exhausted to say the least.

Earl is at the Concordia Hospital and will remain there until he has recovered from the surgery.

Please keep us in your prayers. This has been a very tough week, as my dear mom passed away on the 22nd.

Earls Challenge

Hi Everyone,

As most of you know, we are back from Toronto and continuing on with treatment. Earl has completed 1 of 6 treatments and will go back into hospital on Monday August 20th to get his methaltrexate on Tuesday. We had our first physio appt today, and they are quite pleased at how well Earl is healing and with the leg itself.

After physio, we stopped in at the Terry Fox Foundation office and signed up for the Terry Fox Run on Sunday Sept. 16 at Assiniboine Park. Earl has his own team and wants to challenge all of his friends and family to take part either by being on his team and raising funds or as a financial supporter.
He will be in touch with many of you to ask if you will join his team. It's called "Earl's Friends and Family" or "The Titatium Wall"

Another Way that you can help is by volunteering on the day of the run, they need approx 250 volunteers. The Terry Fox Foundation has very low operating costs and all staff are volunteers and 87 cents from every dollar will go directly to research.

My Challenge to you is let's show Earl how much we love him and admire what a trooper he is!

Take Care,
