For those of you who might be wondering, Pam and Rob joined us for Thanksgiving last week. Those who waste their precious time reading me know that Rob had his left leg amputated last Labor Day and has been undergoing chemotherapy.
I’m glad to report Rob is doing well. Chemo is now complete and he will be scanned in early December.
He is feeling well, has a good attitude and has become quite mobile. He can move from his bed to his chair with little difficulty and from his wheelchair to the front seat of Pam’s car. He is now using the van only for hospital visits. He accomplishes this by using an old-fashioned walker to stand from the wheelchair and move a short distance to the passenger seat
They have gone to the theater twice as well as the electronics store Best Buy last week. My nephew Gary and his wife Kelly graciously hosted Thanksgiving this year. Pam and Rob made it and came to my home for pizza last Saturday.
They stayed at their own home, on their own, from Wednesday evening through Sunday night when Rob returned to his parent’s home as Pam prepared for work Monday.
I am immensely proud of them both for his positive attitude and for the way Pam has grown as a person.
Meanwhile, our families have paid off their home, disposed of one car and reduced expenses to the basics. We want them to think only of being well and returning to a level of normalcy.
