Robbie and the sloth

Having fun taking pictures

Jim and Robbie

Robbie by the Sloth Christmas Tree

We took Robbie to see the sloths at the Dallas World Aquarium today. The sloth is from the Sloth Sanctuary in Costa Rica. Robbie loved visiting the sloth. We were first in line, so he got to the sloth ahead of the crowd. I am so glad we took the time to take him. He loved the sloth Christmas tree in the gift shop, but was too tired to shop this time. He rested on our drive to Houston and continues to rest now that we are home.

I am very thankful we were able to take him on this trip. He is worried about his tests tomorrow, doctor appointments on Monday, and his next chemo treatment this week.

Keep praying ❤

Dallas 11/23/18

We left Oklahoma late afternoon. Robbie loved seeing his sisters. We stopped in Dallas overnight so we can take Robbie to the Dallas Aquarium tomorrow morning. He found a pink sloth at Cracker Barrel. He only got to hold it for the picture. I didn’t cave in to buy it this time. 🙂

We take Robbie back to MD Anderson on Sunday for tests and Monday for results. Jim will also. have test results on Monday.

Great Day

At the Butterfly Center

Shopping at the museum store

New Sloth Ornament from Target

Robbie and I had a great day today. After his bloodwork, we drove to Houston to The Kolache Shoppe and then the Butterfly Center. On our way home we stopped at Target to find the sloth ornaments.

His bloodwork is slowly coming back up, so his Dr is allowing us to travel to Oklahoma to see our girls. A couple weeks ago, his Dr was very hesitant to allow him to travel due to his low blood counts and breathing difficulties due to the fluid in his lungs.

Jim is having tests today to see if his tonsils have cancer too.

Cards for Robbie – Address

With holidays approaching, if you have time, send Robbie a card. It helps to lift his spirits.

He continues to rest and has a slight cough due to the fluid in his lungs. He will have bloodwork in the morning, which will determine our plans for the week. If possible, we will travel to see the girls in Tulsa. 90401E49-B9CB-4112-ABBB-36CCDD6AFEA0

 

Thankful 11/14/18

We are so thankful for the many people that have been supporting us since Robbie got sick. Prayers, text messages, cards, friends making food, and sweet gifts for Robbie. It is so thoughtful and kind. We are very grateful.

We keep waiting and waiting to get things started for Jim. Each time they send him to another team, it seems to take a couple weeks. We are now waiting on the ENT to look at his tonsils and do a biopsy. We thought it would all happen this week, but nothing has been set up.

Sunday at MDA 11/11/18

Robbie finished chemo yesterday and got a blood transfusion over night. This meant that they had to check on him and get his vitals every hour all night long. He was so heavily drugged that he doesn’t even remember. I felt like I stayed at the museum from the movie… Night at The Museum. He slept most of the day yesterday, but has more energy after the transfusion. They gave him two bags of blood. Now he has to stay in the hospital for his kidneys again.

I really like the doctor that does the rounds on the sarcoma floor. She is older and full of energy. Robbie had a crummy older room in a remote part of the hospital on his 1st day. She called the people in charge of rooms and told them she had an aspergers patient that couldn’t handle being in a new location with different staff and got him moved back by her and in a much better room. I love that she watches out for him.

The cafe at MD Anderson is basically shut down on the weekend, with just a few choices left. I hear this lady yell across the cafe to her family…three times no less….Get anything you want and I will pay for it. ….anything! I wonder…did her family members think…wow..I will buy the $3 dollar sandwich instead of the $2 dollar one, since she is buying?? Haha.
