Prayer Request & Day +9 Update

Hi Keep Pounding Rob team!

UPDATE: 7:45 pm, Friday night:

Rob had the MRI on his brain to rule out any bleeding, and we are waiting on the results. I’ll post as soon as we find out the results. He has an awesome night nurse, as usual, and is in excellent care.

The doctor wants Rob’s tri-port removed, due to the clot. They are waiting until Rob’s counts improve before he can do the procedure.

Rob’s color is looking better this evening!! ๐Ÿ™‚ He had second round of platelets this afternoon.

As soon as know more, I will update. In the meantime, if you haven’t voted on the pole name, please do so! ๐Ÿ™‚ #weekend entertainment.

Also, could ya’ll be thinking of some jokes (or funny you tube video links) to share? You can share on the blog, through text 704-301-2480, or to Rob at We could use some laughter this weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you for your blog comments, texts, calls and e-mails!!! You are helping Rob to Keep Pounding each day!!


Rob slept well, but is off to a very rough start this morning.

He has a clot near his tri-port, but thankfully, it isnโ€™t fully blocked.  However, it is causing some swelling in his arm. Normally, the doctors give you anti-clotting medicine, but they canโ€™t do that since he has no platelets.  They are keeping a close eye on it.

A brief recap from yesterday: He had two blood transfusions, and last night received platelets. They were hoping he would have more of a boost from this today, but that is not the case.  They are re-checking the platelet level now. 

Rob has had some mental confusion this morning. Based on that, plus the morning exam, they are ordering a ct scan of the brain. This is to rule out any bleeding that might be occurring in the brain.  

Keep Pounding Rob team, we could use your prayers, please!! Please pray for:

  • A clean CT scan of the brain
  • The clot to go away quickly
  • For his counts to begin climbing again (we should start seeing this in a day or two, as this is par for the course)

I will update throughout the day. Thank you for your continued thoughts and prayers!!!
