2 Years Ago 1/22/20

One of my favorite pictures of our three kids taken 2 years ago in Costa Rica. We arrived at the hotel that we booked and it was well below what was advertised, so Ruth quickly researched and found another hotel nearby. They came and picked us up, helped us to our rooms, and ended up…

Drowning in Grief 1/19/20

I’m not sure if it is due to the fact we started a new year without Robbie or because his one year anniversary is coming up, but I’m drowning in grief the past week. It impacts everyone around me. I am wondering if this is my new normal and if so, how do I cope…

2 Years Ago: Costa Rica Trip 1/18/20

Our family trip to Costa Rica was two years ago this week. Thanks to the help of many people, Robbie was able to go to Costa Rica and visit the sloth sanctuary and other places of interest. He talked about the trip the rest of his life. We have wonderful memories from our time together…

Looking Back on Last January

Robbie a year ago today. A friend sent a cute sloth cup. You can tell that Robbie was very thin and weak. Yet…he was always willing to smile for a picture. It is hard to believe that he only had one month left when this picture was taken.

Testing Results 1/9/20

It was the dreaded testing results day for my husband yesterday! We haven’t slept well the last few nights worrying. Just going to MD Anderson upsets my stomach! So many memories with Robbie! It seems no matter how hard you try to prepare yourself, it is overwhelming and upsetting. It is like a time bomb…

Sweet Gift 1/6/20

We received a sweet gift in the mail today. A sloth that is weighted and also can be put in the microwave for warmth with a lavender scent. It is very thoughtful. Robbie loved sloths and every time I see one I think of him. ❤

Another Attempt at Healthy Choices

The stress, grief ….you name it, our healthy life choices have been put on the back burner or maybe Mars and it shows. With a new year, it is time for a fresh start. I’m not sure how long we will last, since we love anything unhealthy, but we have kicked off 2020 making better…

Last Trip to the Bookstore

A year ago today, Robbie and I took our last trip to a bookstore together. He was so weak that we only stayed for a few minutes. You can tell by his picture that he isn’t feeling well. We both love to read and we used to enjoy going to book stores together. They are…

Good Bye 2019… Happy New Year! 1/1/20

Good bye to 2019! The last time we saw our precious son or heard his voice. Trying to live without him while carrying him in our hearts everywhere we go is so difficult. It is hard to believe it has been 11 months. It still seems like yesterday. It was a year where friends, family,…

Family Cruise

We are going on our 1st Family Cruise. With the sadness of missing Robbie, we decided to do something different for Christmas. Happy Holidays to you and your family. We really appreciate everyone’s support this year.
