Home again home again jiggedy jig

Home again and very glad to say so. Bob thinks that 5-days and nights in the hospital is more than enough. He was x-rayed, cat-scanned, cultured (not like British royalty but like Petri dish germs), infused, transfused, and even poked and prodded. After all of this, we still didn’t learn anything specific about an infection but with 4-pints of wonderful wonderful blood and 3-of 10 radiation treatments completed, he’s on his way to a better quality of life situation. MDA has very nice people who really care about helping Bob feel better but we still are delighted to be out of there.

Barbara and Mark (sister and brother-by-sister) arrive on Sunday for a couple of days. We can hardly wait!!!

Sarah arrived safely home from England. Katy continues to blossom and has very few discomforts from her pregnancy. I am hanging in there and am so so so happy to have Bob home.

Hopefully the next Blog will be from Bob himself.

One day at a time. Piece of cake.

verva, you are doing a great job in keeping us up to date!! this blog is a lifeline for all of us who care....

i understand the responsibility the familiy feels in keeping the blog updated. i think hearing from you, the kids and anyone else on the frontline is great, gives bob's "creative juices" a break (and let's him concentrate on his treatments), and lets others show off their STYLE!

you have all become our caregivers as we walk this journey with you.

love to you all and i'm glad all the family is back on texas gumbo!

love you all.....

Dear Verva & Bob:

Thank you so much for the updates. Glad Bob is back home and can enjoy his chair and good ol' home cooking again. (-: Although I don't get to see you nearly as often as I'd like, please know that I love you both, and you are always in my heart, mind, and spirit. You are dearly loved by so many. As Rindy said, we are all walking this journey together, and we will see each other through.

Love & Blessings,

Dear Verva,Katy and Sarah,

Thank you so much for having shared Bob's last days with us. I cannot imagine how difficult and heartbreaking it must be for you now.

I feel such emptiness. He was my friend, my mentor, my boss and my hero.

Time heals all things and I hope you can all find some measure of peace now. Know that he was loved and respected by every person whomever had the privilege of meeting him.
