Before I begin this post, I would sincerely like to thank the many of you who have supported us during this most difficult time.
Without your help I’m not sure we would have gotten this far. Not having to worry about the simplest things like lights and groceries, and a roof over our head during this time has been a true blessing, and I cannot thank you all enough.
Robbie has responded very well to the first course of treatment, and has shown a significant decrees in the size of his tumor. His spirits and appetite are excellent, and he seems to have gotten through most of the first round with flying colors. There was a minor scare with fever right after they released him the first time, which won him another few days in the hospital after only being home for a few. A good dose of antibiotics and one blood transfusion later he was back to his old self.
We are now back in the hospital for the second round of chemo, and I only pray it goes as well. I have been staying with him since he was admitted and we’re probably going to be here into the weekend. With any kind of luck, this thing will continue to shrink into oblivion, and we can start putting our lives back together sooner rather than later, but then again I’m an optimist and only time will tell.
Unfortunately however, the world still keeps spinning and the bills keep coming. I would love to be able to get back to work, but can’t even consider an interview at the moment since I’m with my son 24/7 working towards his recovery. I would be forever grateful if you could help us out and make a donation on our page, or at least share the link with your friends and followers. It would really mean the world to us.
