I took Robbie to MD Anderson yesterday for bloodwork and to see Dr Ratan. What Robbie thought were bug bites are actually blisters caused by the chemo he is taking. So far only a few, but this can become a problem for some people. His blood pressure is up, which is normally very low….another side effect. His bloodwork so far is looking okay except his platelets have started a slow decline. We doubled his chemo drug and so far the only additional side effect is being tired. He will have scans the end of July to see if the new drug is working. Keep praying for him.
He received a couple cute birthday cards in the mail yesterday, which he enjoyed. We also visited the Museum of Natural Science after his doctor appointments. He didn’t last too long because he was so tired, but he had fun walking around by the dinosaurs. The museum was setting up tables and food for a big event. Robbie said he wishes he could rent the museum and have a party. I told him sorry, but that isn’t in the Birthday budget.
Thank you for all your support.
