Health Update

Denita sent this out to our friends this afternoon:

We got a call today from the Toronto General hospital saying that Glenn was referred to the Thrombosis Clinic there because he has a clot in his Hepatic vein which is in his liver. He needs to begin treatment of that, so we will be going in to Toronto next Wednesday to get him started. The treatment for that is a Heperin shot twice a day for at least 6 months. Heperin is a blood thinner and is more effective than taking Warfarin pills especially when receiving chemo treatments. While treatment will begin at Toronto General, he will be able to be monitored at Credit Valley once we move back there. We still haven't heard from Credit Valley Hospital about an appointment. Please continue to pray that we will hear soon. It would be nice to "get the show on the road".

Have a great weekend.
