We started the day at the Kolache Shoppe for Robbie’s favorite sausage, egg, cheese, and jalapeño in a bun. It is our favorite Kolache place in Houston. It is on Richmond near Weslayan Street. Robbie’s grandpa Mudroch used to make kolaches every year at Christmas. We learned about the bakery when we toured the Czech Museum in Houston.
Next Robbie had bloodwork for the clinical study. He told me they took multiple vials today. Some of the vials are being used for research.
We had extra time between appointments, so we went on a quick trip to the zoo. We ran into Sydney, one of the sweet zookeepers, and she let Robbie feed Curly a couple grapes. This was the highlight of Robbie’s day! Curly even climbed out onto a branch to be near Robbie and the grapes.
Then back to MDA to see his main doctor. Robbie is much better, but still gets tired easily. The side effects of the drugs are starting to wear off . We are so thankful he is doing better. It is scary when you don’t know how long the side effects are going to last or if anything is permanent. We are also thankful for the caring staff at the Sarcoma Center that are all watching out for Robbie.
