Hearts for Hearing

Two years ago today, Robbie was getting his hearing aids adjusted at Hearts for Hearing. He was so happy to be able to hear again. One of the chemo drugs Cisplatin took his hearing and caused non-stop ringing in his ears. He liked Hearts of Hearing so much that when we moved to Houston, he…

Nurses, Doctors, Therapists, Volunteers

Nurses have been in the news lately, so I decided to do a post dedicated to them. ❤ Robbie had many wonderful nurses. They watched over him at night when we couldn’t be there. Built sloth towers on his I V pole with him. One of the doctors would even make up reasons to move…

Rough Day

I had a rough day today. I miss Robbie so much. I really wanted to leave work today by 9AM. I thought about getting a sub. I was so overcome with emotions thinking of Robbie. Work was also very difficult today.

The Piano Guys Concert

Happy Easter

Terry cooking Easter Dinner My great nephew Happy Easter! We are enjoying having my daughter Ruth and my sister Terry visiting this weekend. Today we were also joined by my nephew and his family that live near us and my niece that lives in Houston. After a very emotional week, it is great to spend…

Easter Pictures

  It has been a rough week as we go into our first Easter without Robbie. I am so sad without him. Thankfully my daughter Ruth and my sister Terry came to visit this weekend. It is so good to see them.


I cleaned Robbie’s room today. Dusted around the sloths. Hugged a few sloths. Looked at Robbie’s pictures. I’m trying hard to be at peace that he is safely in heaven. I think mothers should be able to visit heaven and check on our children. ❤

Snap Shots

Robbie loved this swing in our yard in Iowa. He would twist it up, so he could spin and spin. I’ve been looking through his pictures today.

So True

2 months without our sweet boy. ❤ Tears.
