Treatment and Treats 5/17/18

Robbie spent the afternoon at MD Anderson in Katy. When he was done, I stopped for treats.

He is feeling sick tonight and is complaining that his rib hurts on his side.

I’m off to visit my new school tomorrow. I’m excited and nervous. I hope to learn more about my position and what age group I will be teaching.

IV Fluids 5/16/18

Robbie got some much needed sleep while he received IV fluids this afternoon. We should all get more sleep tonight.

We will definitely need a back up plan for the next round, so if it runs late, we will either have Jim along or stay in a hotel overnight. I can’t trust myself to stay awake after 11pm to drive across Houston to Katy.

At the Movies 5/7/18

We took Robbie to see the Avengers last night. Jim and Robbie enjoyed the movie. I prefer movies where there is a plot and still characters living at the end. We are looking forward to the next Star Wars movie.

Robbie had a good weekend. He is able to go further on his bike and he said it is helping his bad leg to gain more range of motion.

We also saw my sister Sandy and her husband from Wisconsin. Her son lives in Katy and has two adorable kids.

Here is Nora trying to carry Robbie’s largest sloth.

Sleepy Robbie and New Job 4/27/18

Just like last round, Robbie has a fever, rash, chills, tired, and miserable.

I interviewed in Katy, TX today and they called later and offered me a job. I will be teaching special education in the fall. We went out to eat to celebrate. Robbie wanted to come along, but we should have encouraged him to stay home and rest. I hate seeing him so sick again.

We have a Mailbox!! 4/12/18

They finally put mailboxes on our street! Yay! Robbie already received a package and a card. Thank you so much!  Hopefully we will have this address for a long time. After living in two apartments, then using a box at the UPS store, I can’t learn another address. Ha

Katy Home address

23622 Messina Harbor Drive. Katy, TX. 77493

Disappointing Day 3/26/18

It was a very disappointing day. Robbie was supposed to start the clinical trial today. He had bloodwork and then we waited 3 hours to find out that treatment had been cancelled today due to low blood counts. We don’t know why his white blood count is so low today. He was given a shot and will receive another shot on Sunday to help boost his white blood count. Then hopefully start the clinical trial next Monday. Robbie was upset and worried to hear this. We hate to delay treatment.

Then Google called and decided they want him to move to California instead of working remotely. Of course…. since he is still fighting cancer, he can’t move right now. Talk about another HUGE disappointment. I wanted to call them personally, but my children told me I wasn’t allowed to call Google and explain why this job is important right now during Robbie’s treatment and cry on the phone.

Robbie wanted to go to the zoo after his rough day. The sloth zoo keeper allowed Robbie in the back with Curly to feed him and talk to him. Curly really likes Robbie and kept looking at him. So cute and so sweet! We love the people at the Houston Zoo. Ruth was with us, so she got to see Curly and feed him too. She changed her flight to leave on Saturday instead of Tuesday, since we are such a mess today.

He received some cards in the mail today from Navico, which he was very excited about! They are so good to him! He also got a cute sloth shirt from a friend and some cards from the Sunshine Snail Mail. Keep the cards coming, you are really helping him.

Thank you for all your support.
