First English Lutheran Church 1/31/16

Robbie has received some cards from my mom’s friends at First English Lutheran Church in Platteville, WI. I love this church and all the families. Many great memories growing up! My mother sewed dolls for missions until she became too frail. I miss her greatly.  Some of the dolls my mother made.  First English Lutheran…

No Chemo Today 1/26/16

Robbie’s blood counts continue to be very low and even dropped lower than last week, so no chemo this week. They will recheck next week and if they are still low, MD Anderson will change the next chemo drugs. His body is still trying to recover from the first 4 rounds of chemo and leg…

Latest Leg Incision Picture (no bandage) 1/21/16

He took his first shower since surgery with a garbage bag taped over his leg and brace. We have a shower chair, but it is still tricky, since our walk-in shower is in a bathroom even smaller than the one Jim is fixing.    Here are the latest leg pics for all my crazy medical…

Tuesday 1/19/16

Robbie had a quiet day today. His leg is really bugging him. I still need to change his bandage today, which is one of my least favorite things to do for him. He told me today that when I get old, he will take care of me, so I don’t have to go to a…

New Bathroom Door 1/17/16
