MD Anderson Update 8/30/17

MD Anderson Sarcoma center called today. They have scheduled Robbie to have chemo on Monday. This means we will be trying to navigate back into Houston this weekend.  We will be checking in advance to see what roads are open. We heard that our apartment building only had some water damage and only lost power…

Amazing Neighbors 8/30/17

We have the most amazing neighbors. Some neighbors have been taking turns mowing our lawn and picking up our mail when it is randomly delivered. They have sent cards and gifts to Robbie and encouraging messages to us. When we got back from Houston, one neighbor dropped off breakfast. Our house has even had a…

Photography and Sloths 8/29/17

Robbie had fun taking pictures at the Oklahoma City Zoo this afternoon.   He also received two new sloths today, which he loves. It was so nice that they thought of him. It really made his day.  I visited Centennial Elementary in the morning and got to see some of my teacher friends that weren’t…

Robbie and Sloth 8/28/17

Robbie enjoyed a quiet day at home today. We are watching the news of Houston and can’t believe the flooding. We continue to pray for everyone’s safety.  I sent a message to Robbie’s doctor to see what we should do. I’m not sure if they can coordinate treatment in OKC until Houston opens again or…

Houston Flooding 8/27/17

This is where we were scheduled to be today with Robbie. Flooding around and in MD Anderson. So thankful we drove home.  Robbie continues to enjoy being home. It is hard to know when we will be able to go back to Houston. Our only concern is delaying chemo, which allows his cancer to grow. …

Home Sweet Home: Church Night 8/26/17

It was nice to be able to attend our church tonight. They have Robbie on their prayer list and they have reached out to us multiple times to see how Robbie is doing. We appreciate everyone that is praying for Robbie. It means a lot to us. We are loving being home for a few…

Home!! 8/25/17

Home sweet home! After a long day of driving with at times very heavy traffic, we are finally home. We are looking forward to seeing our friends and enjoying a few days at home.  We pray that everyone in the Houston area is safe during the storm. 

Leaving Houston ahead of the Storm 8/25

We changed our minds and we are leaving Houston before the major tropical storm hits. Robbie’s chemo was moved to next Thursday. It is already pouring rain and the traffic getting out of Houston is crazy!  We decided that staying during a tropic storm with a sick child would be too risky. The chance for…

Tropical Storm Shopping 8/24/17 updated

Houston has a tropical storm warning for the weekend as Hurricane Harvey heads toward the Texas coast. Heavy rain and flooding is predicted. We joined the many shoppers to get groceries before the storm. I didn’t know cereal was a big item before the storm, but there were many empty shelves along with the bread…
