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.
This is a street we drive to get to our apartment.
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 days. It is so difficult being away from our girls and our friends. It is also nice to be out of the apartment! Living in an apartment without all our belongings is one step above camping out.
A huge thank you to the Houston Zoo for inviting Robbie today on a special behind the scenes tour, which included feeding a sloth, otters, and going into the meerkat exhibit. Sweet zoo keepers telling us all about the animals they care for and snapping pictures for us! Robbie had so much fun! They really like the pictures he has been taking at the zoo and asked him to share with them.
It was amazing to be able to be so close to the sloth! Robbie fed Curly, cucumbers. At one point, Curly fell asleep with food hanging from his mouth. When we went into the meerkat exhibit, they all came running up to us. We fed them live worms that looked like caterpillars. They were very curious about Robbie’s leg brace. They were soft like kittens, but the keepers said that they have strong jaws and can really bite hard if they feel threatened.
This all started when one of the zoo keepers recognized Robbie from the last time we lived in Houston and asked if he wanted to see the sloth again. It took a couple months before Robbie felt well enough between chemo to have a longer zoo visit. They contacted us recently and set everything up.
