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…

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.

Song for Robbie

Robbie’s music fraternity at the University of Tulsa sang a song for Robbie at their concert last night. They talked about Robbie and how much they missed him before singing this song. I wish I could have attended. The girls were able to attend and filmed the song for me. Robbie loved music. ❤
