Test Results = Tears 5/31/18

First….a sweet child singing about Peace in Christ. Keep praying for a miracle for Robbie. Sadly, we learned today that his cancer has continued to grow in his lungs and new tumors have started in both lungs. The immunotherapy that has helped so many people, had no impact on his cancer. The news is devastating…

Tests and Sherlock Homes 5/30/18

Robbie and I started the day at MD Anderson for scans to check for the progress of the current treatment. We are all on edge until we get the results tomorrow. I’m making Jim come along tomorrow in case it is bad news. Keep praying. Next, we went to the Sherlock Homes exhibit at the…

Star Wars 5/28/18

We took Robbie to see the Star Wars movie with his Aunt Anne today. We all enjoyed the movie. It has been great having Anne here this weekend. She flies back to Wisconsin later today. Yesterday we got to spend the day with family. My brother Bill and his wife Tammie were in town from…

New Flag for his Bike 5/26/18

Ruth designed a sloth flag for his bike. He feels well enough to go around our subdivision loop today. (2 miles). He is in better spirits today with his Aunt Anne visiting.

Butterflies and Company 5/25/18

Robbie enjoyed watching the butterflies this morning. He is a little down today because he is worried about the scans next week. We are all nervous. This afternoon we picked up his Aunt Anne (Jim’s sister) from the airport. We are all happy to see her. She lives in Wisconsin and is here for the…

Sleeping and Fever 5/18/18

Here is a picture of the kids playing in the snow when we lived in Iowa. Robbie spent most of today sleeping. He has been running a fever and doesn’t feel very good. His side stopped hurting, so that is good. Any pain that he has, we worry about the cancer spreading. The week of…

Treatment and Treats 5/17/18

Robbie spent the afternoon at MD Anderson in Katy. When he was done, I stopped for treats. He is feeling sick tonight and is complaining that his rib hurts on his side. I’m off to visit my new school tomorrow. I’m excited and nervous. I hope to learn more about my position and what age…

IV Fluids 5/16/18

Robbie got some much needed sleep while he received IV fluids this afternoon. We should all get more sleep tonight. We will definitely need a back up plan for the next round, so if it runs late, we will either have Jim along or stay in a hotel overnight. I can’t trust myself to stay…

Late Night on Tuesday! 5/16/18

This is a picture of Robbie relocating to the first floor last night, because it was too late for his floor. Treatment was delayed starting for almost 3 hours due to a mess up on the orders. Robbie and I didn’t leave MDA until 11pm and arrived home at Katy at midnight. At least there…

Museum of Natural Science and MD Anderson 5/15/18

We spent the afternoon at the museum between appointments. We had a wonderful afternoon together. Tonight we are at MD Anderson for his next round of immunotherapy. They were supposed to start sooner, but it is after 6pm and they haven’t started his treatment yet. It takes at least 3 hours, so it is going…
