Dr. Bobs Adventure

We've created this blog for several reasons. First is to keep family and friends(including Bobs' pts.)informed of Bobs' condition while he undergoes treatment for Acute Myelogenous Leukemia(AML) at HUP. You may also write to Bob by posting a comment, which I'll print for him to read. Please feel free to pass this blog site on to anyone you think may want to join us.Instructions to blog are listed under day 12, and bobs' address etc are under day 14.

Dear friends and family,

I'm not sure how many of you are aware that Bob and I, for all intents and purposes lost our home in a fire last Thursday, Jan. 3rd. Thank God, Jesus, Mary and all the Saints that we are here to tell the tale.....something I am not going to do now. I've repeated our sad saga so many times already, I just can't do it again. But we have had such an outpouring of support in these few short days, I felt I had to come on to thank everyone who has been in touch, but also to make all our out-of-reach friends aware.

We are staying right now with our dear friends Deb and Joe Teklits whom along w/ their son Mike have been unfailingly kind and loving and generous. We hope to be moving into an apartment at Jacobs Woods in Lansdale this Friday, for which we owe a world of gratitude to Anne Macy, for facilitating this transition. Our home will be rebuilt, but we have an estimate of 10 months at this point in time. We have lost a lot of "things", but we have each other and thank God, thus far our "physical health", as Bob says. Our mental health we're not so certain of right now.

At this time we are fine in the material sense....have everything we need. I ask that you just keep us in your prayers as you have always done, and we will keep thanking the good Lord for all of you, as we have always done. To get in touch, please blog or e-mail(mobobmaz@msn.com). Our cell is the same, but as it is a tracfone we are trying to save our minutes for the umpteen calls we must make everyday. I'll try to write soon, but we are still quite overwhelmed with all there is to be taken care of. Hope you are all well, and I'll be back when I can.

All our love,
Bob and Mo
