He got back on a snowboard

January 3rd, 2008 · No Comments

Dr. Adler (Travis’s neurosurgeon) said that his goal for Travis was to get him back on a snowboard.  Well not even six months after his surgery Travis got back on the mountain after a two season hiatus.  It was great to see him snowboarding again.  I am so glad that this was not permanently taken [...]

A little update

October 15th, 2007 · No Comments

Travis seems to be doing better.  At first I thought that he had reached a plateau, it has not seemed like anything new had changed.  That is part of the reason that I have not written.  But then I realized something this morning.  He had two long days in a row and he woke up [...]

One of Those Days…..

September 19th, 2007 · No Comments

Since last week Travis has not been feeling too well.  He describes to me that there is a lot of “tingling” and pain on the left side of his face, he has had many headaches, and he has been worn out.  He goes through these stages. Some days you would never know anything was wrong [...]

His nose is like an ice cube.

September 11th, 2007 · 4 Comments

 Now I know that this is going to sound funny but Travis’s nose feels like an ice cube.  Not just right now, but ever since he had his first surgery.  If I touch his nose it is freezing and it kind of feels wet.  I think it is due to nerve damage.  It also runs [...]

How has he been doing?

September 4th, 2007 · No Comments

Travis’s nose runs and because his nose and upper lip is numb he can’t feel it.  If I notice it I let him know so that he can wipe his nose but if I miss it he finds out when his nose runs into his mouth.  Travis’s forehead is still paralyzed on the left side.  [...]

“I’m sorry. I lost my train of thought”

August 30th, 2007 · No Comments

Today was pretty normal for us.  Tori went to school, her picture day was today.  Travis and I ran some errands and we spent the rest of our time on the computers.  Travis is such a strong guy.  He never makes any excuses.  Brain surgery hardly slowed him down.  Hours after his surgery he was [...]
