Walk for Childhood Cancer in Galveston 3/18/18

On Saturday, Jim, Robbie, and I went to Galveston to walk for childhood cancer awareness in honor of Julia Cobb, who passed away from Ewing’s Sarcoma. It is very similar to Osteosarcoma. They are a wonderful family and have a foundation to help other cancer families called JuCan Foundation For more information, you can visit their website. http://www.jucanfoundation.org

Robbie walked a total of 7 miles yesterday. He went 4.5 miles with the walk for cancer and another three miles walking around the beach and to our car. He is very tired, but he had a wonderful day. He found out that he can go further than he thought he could.

Tomorrow he will be back at MD Anderson for a long day of testing and appointments.

Visiting Parks 3/9/18

Robbie loves to go to parks, so we left the boxes behind today and went to a couple different parks according to Yelp ratings. We found the first park to be a long drive and disappointing. The other park is huge and we plan to explore it more next time. It has a swing that Robbie would like Jim to put on our porch. We also talked about cancer and life.

Hiking 11/26/17

Jim and I took Robbie back to Brazo’s State Park today. We went hiking and we saw two alligators swimming in the lake. The weather today is almost 80 and beautiful.

It also would have been my mother’s 88th birthday today. I miss her so much. Here is a picture of Robbie with his grandma. She passed away just a few months before we found out that Robbie has cancer.

Robbie and I had two choices today. Stay home and worry all day about tests tomorrow or go on an adventure. We went to Brazos Bend State Park, which is about an hour from Houston. The weather was perfect and we had a fun day together. I posted a slideshow from our day.

Pray for good results on testing this week.

Centennial Gardens 11/6/17

Robbie and I walked across the street from our apartment to Centennial Gardens. We didn’t stay long, since he forgot part of his camera and he was tired from the walk. 

His blood counts are coming back nicely and his cold is getting better.  

I got my temporary teaching certificate today, which gives me a year to take all the tests.
