Journal entry by Father Tighe

Dear friends,

I hope this note finds you well. Recently I had scans as the three month schedule dictated. At first glance it looks like great information, but after a discussion with my oncologist, Dr Hope Uronus, we decided not to continue with the chemo therapy. A new side effect of my treatment had produced aspirations, which will be addressed with a stent on Monday. Also, recognizing that the old pain control medicine had become ineffective, she ordered hospice care at my residence starting next week,  

My family will begin rotating as caregivers and gatekeepers. Thank you for your continued and faithful prayers as I enter this new phase of the disease.  Many people have access to my cell phone and email account and I realize there is a temptation to want to go around this caring bridge post, but, I kindly ask you to refrain.  I will read your caringBridge responses as a book on caring bridge and draw strength from your love, prayers and your faithful examples.  
Here is a candid photo from the end of JULY when my siblings, cousins and I enjoyed a great wind at our back and Jesus’ peaceful words DO NOT  BE AFRAID !  I am with you always!

I love you,

Fr. Tighe
