Robbie has been having trouble breathing, so they did scans and found that his left lung was full of fluid. A lung specialist did a procedure today and removed 600ml of fluid from his lung. His color is already much better. He was looking very gray.
The latest scans show that his cancer is spreading quickly and his Dr doesn’t recommend additional treatment. He told us that Robbie only has weeks to live and recommends hospice.
Robbie has been running a fever the last few days. He sleeps a lot and is coughing more. As long as his temperature is below 101, we don’t have to take him into Anderson. It has been between 99 and 100.8. He doesn’t want to go back to the hospital, so we are holding off for now.
Robbie is sleeping with an electric blanket tonight. He had an appointment at 7, but I just canceled it because he is too tired. His color is very gray and he is weak. Just walking down the stairs for supper was exhausting for him. It is warmer upstairs, so he has been up there a lot lately in our family room.
I don’t know if it is the chemo drugs or cancer or both.
He and Jim saw the “super blood moon” at 11pm last night. They both love science.
