Quiet Rainy Day 10/30/15

It has been a quiet day. Robbie hasn’t felt very good today. New mouth sores from the chemo and stomach pain. We are watching movies together. 

Lemon Bars 10/30/15

My sweet hairdresser trimmed off the little hair patches that he had left today. I took him to the doctor today and while we waited, some older people were chatting with each other in great detail about their surgeries and showing off their scars. I made Robbie move across the room with me before I got…

Resting Today 10/27/15

Robbie rested today, worked on homework, and played on his computer. He didn’t have the energy to go anywhere, but overall is doing better than last time after chemo.  I deleted several posts because one of my kids told me the blog is too depressing. Cancer is depressing!  Our days are up and down.  …

Trip to the Park 10/26/15

We went to the park today and watched the ducks on the lake.  Robbie said…now we can see what the “stay at home” moms do with their kids. Haha.  It is beautiful outside today. Robbie is weak but enjoyed being outside.  The best part of this year is spending time together. 

Home!! 10/23/15

We are home! Round 2 is done. He is wearing a new hat from his Aunt Terry. 

Waiting to Go Home 10/23/15

We are waiting for permission to go home. I modified Robbie’s shirt so it opens at his shoulders for his port and IV. He is happy to be going home today. His only complaint is an upset stomach. 

Life in the Hospital 10/22/15

We are thankful for the many kind and caring people taking care of our son. I really like his Dr and his personal nurse from their office.  Still hospital life can make you nuts. My head has been pounding all week and I’m sure even if someone could walk on water, I would be unhappy!…

Sleeping away the Afternoon 10/19/15

So far things are starting out smoother and they have addressed most of our concerns. Robbie’s leg is so much better. I hate to put him through a couple weeks of misery again. Jim and I were both awake most of the night worrying about him.  Thankful to friends and neighbors stopping by with food….

Painting Pumpkins 10/18/15

The girls brought pumpkins and paint to keep Robbie busy before chemo starts tomorrow. He had fun and lasted a long time before resting. It is beautiful weather and we are having a great day. They are also enjoying time with their Aunt Terry.
