Rob's Cyber Waiting Room
Do you remember the picture we posted a few weeks ago of Robi's arm? This is a picture of his arm last week.
Recently, I had a friend share an interesting statistic she learned from a show she had listened to. The guest on the show shared that the number of people sitting in the waiting room for an injured or sick patient receiving care in an Emergency Room had a direct correlation with how the patient fared and recovered. Those with few or no friends or family in the waiting room didn't do as well or recover as quickly as those with many friends and family in the waiting room. The support in the waiting room is like a lifeline and motivation for the patient to pull through and recover. It is the support and strength when a little extra is needed!
Yesterday Robi was admitted to Emergency Room the hospital at MD Anderson in Houston, Texas. The doctor is concerned because of his low oxygen levels due to the tumors in his lungs. Doctors will present the treatment process today.
We figure that our blog is like the door between Rob's "Emergency Room" (the hospital/home) and the "Waiting Room" that is cyber space. We would like for everyone reading the blog to leave a comment so they would know who was in their "cyber waiting room". Please let him know you are here and cheering him on. We can and will make a difference in his healing process.
We know there are hundreds of you in Rob's "Waiting Room." Let him know you are here. He's got a lot ahead of him the next few months. I know he'll fare better and recover more quickly with any love and encouragement you wish to share! Thank you so much to everyone for all the love and generosity, in every form: financial, comments and prayers. Experiences like these really showcase the depths of human love and compassion.
Please take a moment to leave a comment. Feel free to comment anonymously or just using your first name--whatever you're comfortable with. This blog is open and waiting for comments from everyone. Please spread the word so anyone who would like to, can sign in at his waiting room.
