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.

Happy Birthday to my most amazing husband!!

Hi all,

Just thought I'd come on and give you a quick update, seeing as it's my April Fool's birthday. I can honestly tell you that 6 weeks ago I did not think Bob would be celebrating his birthday this year, but he has come back from the brink again...I'll refrain from comparing him to Lazarus, but with Easter just passed that has been in my head. He is doing very, very well!! In fact he left the house today for a podiatrist's appt.! We have a transfer wheelchair now and everything went great. He's still wearing his oxygen, but oftentimes I'll look over and it will be oxygenating his bald head or his neck cuz he'll have removed it. He hasn't had morphine in close to 2 weeks and his appetite remains great. We had a wonderful Easter/Birthday celebration yesterday w/ all of Bob's family. I made 2 side dishes and everybody else brought all the rest.....too extensive to go into. I'll just say  brother Bill made lamb and ham, though no lambs' heads were on the menu like back in the days of Catherine and Dan (Bob's parents). Anyway, it was a wonderful day and Bob revelled in it.

We want to thank you all for your continued support, good wishes and always your prayers. We would go, as Pat says to Mike, right down the drain if you ever dropped us. So thank you for sticking with us through it all.

With our love and prayers,
Mo and Bob
