Robb’s Life Chapter 34 –Drug Treatments Intensify as Robb’s Health Slips

Robb and Sandee 1

Nurse Sandee Millage talks with Robb about possible side effects associated with a more intense drug treatment.

Things were getting a little more serious for Robb Dussliere during the first week of February, 20 years ago (1996). He had been throwing up blood, so his drug treatment intensified.

I went with Robb to see AIDS nurse Sandee Millage, who gave him such kind, compassionate care. He would make her laugh with his sense of humor, despite how badly he was feeling. Throughout this series, we met the finest people — Beth Wehrman, Dr. Louis Katz, Sandee, and others — all dedicated to helping people who found themselves struggling with HIV and AIDS.

At this point, Robb was beginning to realize he was heading downhill. I think I was still in denial, expecting him to bounce back again.
