Final days 2/9/21

2/9/19

On 2/9/19, we took Robbie to the ER at MD Anderson and he was admitted. Although they told us he probably had only weeks or days left. It ended up being only three more days. When this picture popped up on my Google memories today, I wasn’t sure I could last all day teaching, I was so sad. 😢. Thankfully I already planned to use my personal days to take off the rest of this week. ❤️

Not only had his cancer spread throughout his major organs, he had a lung infection. Between his lungs filling up with fluid from the cancer and the infection, they were filling up faster than the medical staff could drain them. They put tubes in his lungs the day before he passed away to try to get ahead of it, but it wasn’t enough. Seeing him suffer was heartbreaking! Watching him take his last breath is something that will be with me forever. At first I thought, he was finally peaceful after being in so much pain and then I realized he wasn’t breathing. 💔

He told me before we went to the hospital….I don’t want to die before you and dad. I tried to reassure him that his grandparents would watch out for him in Heaven until we could be there with him. Tears.
