Day of Appointments 2/29/16

Robbie and I will be at MD Anderson all day today. Two appointments down, three to go. We won’t be done until 5:00pm. 

Dr Ratan wants to start chemo again on Wed. He isn’t sure how many more rounds of chemo, but his team is thinking 4 or more. 
Robbie and I are trying to find a quiet spot to hang out. 

Numbers Went Up 2/24/16

Robbie’s blood count went up today, so he doesn’t have to have blood taken again until next Monday. Yay!  His platelets and white blood count are still low, but slowly inching up. 
He is having a great day. He got a gyro from a food truck and ice cream from 
Baskin-Robbins. He wanted to try something different. 

Tuesday Morning Updated 2/23/16

Done with bloodwork and waiting for Jim to pick us up. They will call this afternoon with the results. 
3:00 They just called with his results and his counts went down slightly from yesterday, which was a disappointment. Praying for better results tomorrow. He has slept most of the day today.

Early Morning 2/21/16

Robbie is very tired hanging out at MD Anderson this morning. Getting there by 7:30 AM, made for an early morning.  His platelets stayed the same today at 39,000. Normal is between 150,000 and 450,000. White blood counts dropped again. We are hoping since the platelets stayed the same that they will start going back up tomorrow. 

We’d like to find a church to attend while we are in Houston. If anyone has suggestions, let us know. 

Saturday Blood Tests 2/20/16

It is quiet at MD Anderson on Saturday morning. 
Robbie humor: The nurse said… I’m here to “draw” your blood. Robbie said…You are going to “draw” pictures of my blood? 🙂 The nurses love him. His blood counts took another jump down. I’m praying they start to swing back up. More blood tests tomorrow.
