Dr. Klimo has resumed treatment with Irinotecan in addition to the Erbitux in hopes that it will provide a measure of relief. So far it seems to be helping on the pain front. Naseau, fatigue, and diarrhea are again, however, the order of the day. At this stage of the game it is amazing how important pain relief can become. There is nothing more mentally disabling than chronic pain, as many of you who live with it know.
I will have an opportunity to bring closure to my pastoral relationship with St. Stephen's, and my life as a minister, at a couple of services this Fall. We are tentatively planning a farewell service for October 3rd. The day before my birthday and the feast of St. Francis, which suits me very well!
After that we will be heading to Edmonton to celebrate Robyn's marriage to Brandon on 10-10-10.
Peace and blessings... Rob
