Robbie is home! 9/28/18

I work with an amazing Special Ed team that adopted two sloths at the Sloth Sanctuary in Costa Rica for Robbie and gave him two new adorable sloths. They are putting up with a broken hearted mother that cries often, instead of the teacher they hoped I would be.

Still no news on Jim’s test.

Another Day at MDA 9/26/18

Lynn spent another day with Robbie. He looks a little pale tonight and is coughing again. He had another blood transfusion in the night. He is done with chemo this round, but they are waiting on his kidneys to be back to normal before he can go home

Jim and I went to see him tonight. The Houston traffic was really heavy and it took us almost 2 hours. I can do it in 40 minutes on a good day. No test results for Jim yet.

Tuesday 9/25/18

Lynn just sent this picture to me. She got pizza for Robbie for supper. He needed a blood transfusion for very low red blood counts today, but is feeling better tonight. Lynn is spending the night with him.

Jim had his biopsy today. We aren’t sure when we will get results.

The nurses made his bed when he was out of his room today. 💜

Hospital Day 5 September 24, 2018

This picture of Robbie and Jim is from May 2015, which was just a couple months before we found out that Robbie has bone cancer. Tomorrow Jim has a biopsy. Praying that he isn’t sick too.

Robbie continues to receive chemo treatments this week in the hospital at MD Anderson. His kidneys are being impacted again, so we don’t know how long he will be in the hospital.

Siblings 9/22/18

Iowa August 2004 Moving Day

Lynn flew in late last night and will work remotely for a week and help out with Robbie at the hospital. Ruth is flying down in a couple weeks to help out with Robbie. I love how the girls are helping out with their younger brother.

This picture makes me smile. I told them I wanted to take their picture before we left Iowa for our move to Oklahma. When I came outside they were all wearing my sunglasses.

Updates, Zoo Pics, & Chemo

Robbie spent the morning at MD Anderson. Although he didn’t have the major scans today, they did xray his lungs. The xray is showing slightly more fluid in his lungs and more cancer activity in a couple areas than the most recent xray done in the hospital. X-rays are not as accurate, so I’m praying the next scans will show improvement.

Today an older couple started talking to him and then they said…..We will add you to our prayer list. Robbie said…you are going to have a long prayer list if you talk with many people here today. Ha

Then we went to the Houston Zoo. He got to go behind the scenes to feed Curly again. They are so good to him.

Now, we are back to MD Anderson and he has been admitted to their hospital for chemo.
