New sloths after a rough day.
The fight continues and Robbie has beat the odds many times in his life and we pray he can do it again.
We got good news, bad news, and horrible news today.
The good news is that there isn’t new cancer growth or new tumors.
The bad news is the current cancer is still alive and doesn’t show any signs of dying.
The horrible news is that his Dr feels it is unlikely that he will go into remission again. He can have chemo to try to keep it stable, but the drugs won’t work forever. Robbie has damaged bone marrow that impacts the type of treatment he can receive.
The current plan is to have 4 more rounds of heavy chemo over the next 4 months and then determine if it is possible to do lung surgery. We will also need to decide at some point, after a few months, if we should continue treatment in Houston or move home for treatment. It will all depend on how treatment progresses.
We will also start looking into doing things on his bucket list. One thing he would like to do is visit the Sloth sanctuary in Costa Rica. If in the future he is able to take a break from chemo, we will look into this.
Ruth stared a fund for his trip to see the Sloth Sanctuary.
