International Sloth Day from 2018

Robbie October 2018

A picture of Robbie in the hospital from 3 years ago. I miss his sweet smile. I haven’t posted much lately. I was waiting to be back on track, but grief in the fall is tough. Fall marks our final months that we were able to do things together. I am thankful for the continued…

6 Years 8/27/21

This day will always stand out. It was supposed to be a quick visit for a 2nd opinion, because the first orthopedic specialist told us not to worry told us not to worry about Robbie’s leg. Instead we learned that Robbie probably had bone cancer, which was confirmed a few days later. I remember thinking,…

Museum 4 years ago 8/22/21

Many good memories visiting the museum together. The one nice thing about our apartment in Houston was the location near all the museums.
