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.

Rhane's here!!!!

Dear friends and family,

Well, it's obvious that you are all storming the Heavens with prayers on Bob's behalf, cuz he's very stable. He's eating like his old self...pasta Carbonara, lobster mac n cheese, NE clam chowdah and of course, that's a good thing. He's also able to walk a bit and even sat up in a chair for 2 hours today.
 It's also a good day, b/c our granddaughter, Rhane is here from Mass. She and her Dad had a good visit with Bob while he was sitting up, and now he's taking a nap.
Oh, and Bob, after persuading me to do the deed, is now mustache-less. Actually he's completely hairless on his head, as he wanted his head shaved too....well, he still has eyebrows and eyelashes. To tell the truth it's freaking me out, cuz w/o the mustache, he looks like a bald version of his Mom...sorry Catherine. I know you would never want to be thought of that way, but he does!
So, our house has been a happenin' place. I'm sorry I haven't answered everyone's calls, but that usually means I am physically assisting Bob. I know you are all thinking of us and sending well-wishes. If Bob continues to improve, visitors would be most welcome this week. For now, Matt and Rhane are the best medicine for him, and will only be here til tomorrow night. Gotta run, Matt the IT guru needs to work on the PC...he has been a Godsend to me these past few days in so many ways. I'll write again soon.

All our love,
Bob and Mo

Dear Bob,

Thanks for letting us at the Prep know about your request for prayers for your health.

Your request reminds us of real life and of how our sharing in it gives us all support and encouragement.

I will be celebrating Mass for you and your family tomorrow morning in the Prep chapel.

George Bur, S.J.
