May Update

Hello Everyone,

Well as May begins, we here in Winnipeg have snow on the ground. After a beautiful week of warm weather and neighbors raking and yard cleaning we have snow. Go figure!

Snow on the ground and bad news from the Dr. seems to start a theme here, but the snow will melt and Earl will beat this cancer! I am sure of that. Just as we can't see or feel the wind...we know it is there and Just as we can't see or feel Jesus we know He is here and present in our lives!!!!! We believe and trust in the power of Jesus and we know he loves Earl....so think about that for a little while....and say a little prayer for Earl as you read the rest of this post.

We saw the oncologist last Tuesday and the results of the latest CT Scan show that the tumor in his kidney and IVC (vena cava) this means that the chemo has stopped working and we move on the the next treatment. Even though in the beginning the docs, said Earl's condition was non operable...they feel it is operable now. The chemo worked enough that they are willing to give it a try, so Earl has been referred to a oncologist/urologist for surgical consideration and/or chemoemoblization.

Please pray that the referral process will go quickly and that we will see the surgeon immediately and that he will have a answer for us.

Have a great Sunday,

Buddy, you are giving all the juice to your beloved Wings as they are on the verge of making history. The will to overcome and succeed over powers all.... believe, apply, believe, apply... there are so many examples you have provided that anyone that has had the pleasure of being around you gets the infection of Earl!!!

Claire will be in Winnipeg this weekend and is thrilled you and Debbie may get a chance to see her.

Thanks for your every day Earl.
