My Story

Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most. For those who do not know our precious soldier, you can read about him in the background section.On Monday, November 5th, 2012, our son Robby suffered a tragic accident. While playing outside, Robby accidentally became pinned underneath a tree stump for an extended period of time. After being rescued by the West Redding Fire Department, he was found to be in cardiac arrest. In a combined effort between the fire department and paramedics from Danbury Health Care Affiliates, he was successfully resuscitated and transported to Danbury Hospital. He was stabilized and transferred by Lifestar helicopter to Connecticut Children's Medical Centers Pediatric Intensive Care Unit in Hartford. This journal will serve as an update to family, friends, and "no strangers only friends", all of whom we are so thankful to have rooting for team Robby! Love to every one of you!
About Robby:
Robby is a light to everyone he meets. He truly believes in no strangers, only friends, and will talk to and make friends with anyone! He doesn't have a mean bone in his body. He is compassionate and caring. He has a wonderful sense of humor, and can make everyone laugh, even on the bluest of days. He is extremely bright...beyond his years. Sometimes, we think he may be 4 going on 14. Robby is a very good boy with a very mischievous streak! He loves to question everything, will reason for anything he wants, and push limits, haha! Robby is an individual who always marches to the beat of his own drum! Robby talks to anyone and everyone he meets. He is a love to all! He enjoys anything army and superhero, doing projects and crafts, playing outside, the park, any and all vehicles, a variety of music, dogs and other animals, drums, video games, his dance lessons, reading, swimming, baseball, soccer, spending time with family and friends, and showing great curiosity about the world around him! We believe he will be restored fully and enjoy every one of his favorite activities again!
