Science Museum & Dr Appointments 8/22/17

Early this morning, Robbie and I went to MD Anderson to see his Dr.  We asked him about the Costa Rica trip and he said he would know more after Robbie’s next round of chemo and scans…maybe December.  He also said that depending on how his treatment is going the next couple months, they might…

Eclipse Day 8/21/17

We watched the eclipse on tv. Ruth and Lynn sent us pictures watching the eclipse in Tulsa.  Robbie and I also tried to visit the Fire Station Museum, but it is closed on Mondays.  The gps took us on a crazy route, so Robbie said he had enough adventure for the day.  Driving around Houston…

Gladiator Exhibit 8/20/17

Jim & I took Robbie to the Gladiator Exhibit at the science museum today. I got a picture of Robbie with one of the gladiator actors.  Robbie is having a great weekend. His next round of chemo is next Sunday, so we have a few days that he can get out before he is sick…

Museum of Natural Science 8/18/17

I took Robbie to the Houston Museum of Natural Science today. He took pictures of the dinosaurs, rocks, and the special exhibit area.  I posted his pictures today. Normally I post pictures from my iPhone.   We also got a frog poster with frogs that live in Costa Rica to hang on his wall and…

Thank You 8/17/17

There really isn’t a way to say thank you enough for how grateful we are for everyone’s support while Robbie is sick. Through the grief of having a sick child, we have seen many acts of kindness. You may not realize what a blessing you have been, but your prayers, kind thoughts, cards, and support…

Monkey area of the Zoo 8/17/17

We walked further than usual and went by the monkey area today. We also saw the baby elephant get a bath. Robbie was quickly exhausted between our walk and the heat. We enjoyed getting out and about together. 

Taking Pictures of fish 8/16/17

Robbie had fun with his new camera this morning at the zoo. He got tired quickly, but it was good to get out of the apartment. It is also nice to have my car and the handicap pass again. I’m so glad the girls drove it down last week. 

Bookstore and Better Blood counts 8/15/17

Robbie’s blood counts started slowly coming back up, which is sooner than last time.  They are still low, but out of the danger zone, which means we can take him out of isolation. I’m constantly disinfecting our apartment like a hospital! It made me nervous to have children near him this weekend, but it is…

Package for Robbie 8/14/17

Robbie got a package in the mail today with sloth books and a cute little sloth. It really made his day!  Thank you for thinking of him.
