The food cravings are strong with this one. Sometimes we tease Atticus that it's worse than a pregnant woman's cravings, with sending me or Anneka out at all hours to hunt for a very specific food for him! Of course, having cancer and going through chemo is pretty heinous so of course we tend to spoil him a little more and try to make what is a miserable experience just a little happier.
What makes Atticus happy, you asked? What is great therapy for him during these miserable inpatient chemotherapy days? Big piles of meat, that's what.
We have our Amazon Wish List, which is currently updated with foods and restaurant gift cards.
Russell Street BBQ is fairly close to the hospital, I was able to walk there easily and pick up his food. So now he has discovered how delicious smoked brisket is and other scrumptious southern food... now I'm really in trouble!
Dickey's also makes some pretty great brisket and ribs, and I can get them by the pound and freeze them in meal sizes for quick cravings! Gift cards to Dickeys are available on Amazon.
This is where you all come in... so many of you ask how you can help, and this is a pretty big way you can make Atticus' life a little bit better, happier, and his tummy fuller. Go on to our Amazon wish list and send a digital gift card, or a Russell Street BBQ gift card for when he's in the hospital!
Atticus also has a Paypal that you can send money to that he can use to buy more games on his laptop for hospital times, or to turn into treats for himself as well.
