Squeezing into an elevator to take the kids to lunch.
We ended up leaving because Robbie felt faint and very weak. We were going to the movies. Robbie wants to see the sloths in Zootopia.
They are working hard to help his leg in OT and PT. He goes for two hours per session three times a week. Therapy causes him to have a lot of leg pain, so he is an unhappy camper today!
They have camp at Anderson this week for kids with cancer. Robbie is having fun between appointments. They have wheels under the canoes and soft angry birds to throw at the othe canoes.
Robbie got a new hat from his Aunt Terry. Today he is very tired.
Early appointments today, so he is done and we are waiting on Jim to pick us up.
Robbie had OT and PT this morning. He felt really lightheaded and his blood pressure dropped to 88/50. His bloodwork looks as expected after chemo, except for very low white blood count.
We are very stressed out after another week of chemo.
Thank you for your prayers.
Working hard with PT on his leg.
Sleeping off the chemo.
Finally leaving the hospital today! He finished round 6 of chemo. He is back at the apartment with us and is sound asleep. He enjoyed the sweet cards he got this week.
They are starting the chemo drug Methotrexate this morning. His nurse wears a gown over her clothes when hooking it up.
The new computer system has slowed the start and is causing a lot of confusion. Every piece of electronic equipment has changed. I’m not sure if coming to the hospital during the implementation of something that impacts all recording systems is optimal timing. The only good thing is free valet parking today, because they are also hooked to the new system.
Robbie is checked in and waiting to start Chemo round 6. We met someone on the elevator that got off with us and helped us to his room. Robbie was in a wheelchair and I also had his walker, pillow, blanket, suitcase, our backpacks, and sloths.
Jim, Ruth, and Nick are about 3 hrs away.
