Sloth Nose Print 1/28/19

Robbie received a sloth nose print from the Topeka Zoo today that Ruth ordered for him. He had to sign for the letter. His smile says it all. We will have to find a tiny frame for it. He is still sleeping a lot, but looks better today.

Houston Zoo 12/2/18

We took Robbie to the Houston Zoo this morning. The zookeeper we know was there and she let Robbie fed Curly, which made him smile. He was tired quickly, so we left after visiting the sloth. He laid down in the back of the car and rested on the trip back to Katy.

Relaxing Day 10/30/18

The picture is from a year ago at the zoo as one punch man. This year he is relaxing and recovering from the last round of chemo.

Updates, Zoo Pics, & Chemo

Robbie spent the morning at MD Anderson. Although he didn’t have the major scans today, they did xray his lungs. The xray is showing slightly more fluid in his lungs and more cancer activity in a couple areas than the most recent xray done in the hospital. X-rays are not as accurate, so I’m praying…

We Love the Houston Zoo 8/30/18

We really appreciate the staff at the Natural Encounters building for always being so kind to Robbie. When they found out he was having a rough week, they invited him to feed and spend time with Curly the sloth. ❤️

Thankful for Friends and Family 8/29/18

Robbie’s Week 6/20/18

Robbie had a wonderful week in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He got to spend time with his friends and his sisters. We are very grateful to the Tulsa Zoo for allowing him to have a special day there with multiple behind the scenes tours with various animals including their sloth. Something he won’t forget. I’m not able…

MDA and Zoo 6/7/18

We started the day at the Kolache Shoppe in Houston. Robbie loves going there and often gets the sausage, cheese, and jalapeño pepper Kolache. Next a full day of tests at MD Anderson. He had bloodwork twice because the first person missed a few things. Also tests on his heart function. Then we went for…

MD Anderson and The Zoo 5/14/18

Robbie’s bloodwork is too low for treatment today. Since he couldn’t have chemo, we went to the Houston Zoo. Curly had a few tours today, so when they got done, they let Robbie visit Curly. While we waited, we visited the gift shop and Robbie got a cute red panda. The red panda is another…

Kolaches, MD Anderson, and the Zoo 4/9/18

We started the day at the Kolache Shoppe for Robbie’s favorite sausage, egg, cheese, and jalapeño in a bun. It is our favorite Kolache place in Houston. It is on Richmond near Weslayan Street. Robbie’s grandpa Mudroch used to make kolaches every year at Christmas. We learned about the bakery when we toured the Czech…
