Robbie at the ER 2/9/20

A year ago today, we took Robbie to the ER (2nd time in a few days) at MD Anderson due to shortness of breath and he was very weak. His lungs were filling back up with fluid. They admitted him to the hospital and he was never able to come home again. The next few days were the worst days for Robbie and the saddest days for us.

As we continued to pray for a miracle, it was obvious we were losing our sweet boy and watching him suffer was killing us. Scans of his lungs showed cancer in all major nearby organs.

I wish I could erase the memories of his last days and only remember the happier times. It is going to take a lot of strength to get through this week as the memories flood our minds and out our eyes. I took off in advance Wed-Fri, but I should have taken the entire week. I can’t imagine teaching this week.

Better memories were from 2 years ago today, when Robbie and I were at Houston’s Museum of Natural Science. We had so much fun going to the museum and taking silly pictures.

    I can only imagine how difficult this week will be for you and your family. I know itโ€™s little comfort to say that my thoughts and prayers will be with you. And, they will be with you, as will prayers from all those who loved Robbie… ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’™
