February 8, 2016 - Praying the Novena
Today marks the 5th cycle of an 8 cycle of chemotherapy protocol. Father is undergoing chemotherapy to kill any remaining cancer cells that may be present following his surgery to remove a cancerous tumor back in November. He checks into Cancer Care Northwest every other Monday to sit for a four hour infusion of a chemotherapy called Oxaliplatin. When this is finished, he is then attached to a pump which contains a chemotherapy called Fluorouracil which is delivered through a port in his chest for 48 hours. He then takes 10 days to recover and returns to repeat the process again. This 8 cycle chemotherapy protocol will continue until the end of March 2016. Although this presents Father with some challenges, it is nonethless the best way to give him the most positive survival rate possible.
In addition to managing some lingering post-operative pain, Father Connall is experiencing the side effects of chemotherapy which include cold sensitivity, fatigue, and periodic nausea. As these ongoing realities present themselves, he will need to further curtail his appointments and availablity. At the present time, he is devoting the bulk of his energy to preaching and participating in the the Lourdes Novena for Healing. Father is invoking the prayers of Our Lady of Lourdes, Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, and Pope St. John Paul II for a complete healing.
One of the greatest sources of consolation for Father Connall is all of your prayers and acts of kindness. Although he cannot respond to everyone, please click here to leave a message of support. Thank you very much!
