Robbie and his Sloth 1/24/19

Robbie woke up long enough for a picture tonight. He continues to sleep a lot. I fell asleep in my chair tonight. Wish I could sleep better at night, because I am tired all the time. We are in a storm that keeps growing this year. So many things are out of my control. Keep…

Resting 1/21/19

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…

Sleeping like a Baby 1/20/19

We have all been “sleeping like a baby” lately. It seems like there is always someone awake. He is very thin, weak, and tired on the new chemo pills that he takes. I haven’t taken many pictures this week.

New Shirt 1/9/19

Robbie was given a new shirt from Lynn’s friend. “I run better than the government”… He still has a fever today, but it isn’t as high and he feels better today. Tomorrow he starts the next round of chemo drugs. I hope this round isn’t as hard on him.

Fever and Sister Visit 1/9/19

Tests and Butterflies 1/6/19

We left our house at 5:30AM for Robbie’s tests at Anderson. When we arrived, the line was out into the hallway and the person checking people in was painfully slow. After 45 minutes, Robbie finally got to check in. She was like the sloth in Zootopia. After his tests, he was exhausted, but since he…

Pictures with Sloths 1/5/19

Robbie texted me today while I was out running errands. Mom…Here is a picture for the blog. Robbie with his 3 largest sloths. Love him so much. He continues to be very weak, but is awake more and is complaining less of his back. He is breathing heavily when he walks, which frustrates him because…

Better Day 12/30/18

The Girls left for Tulsa 12/29/18
