Two years ago today…An Update

July 13th, 2009 · 7 Comments

Two years ago today I was sitting in the Stanford Hospital waiting room worried that my husband might not make it through brain surgery.

The Show Must Go On!!!!

We are approaching the two year mark to the day that Travis was diagnosed.  I still remember that day.  He was sitting up in a hospital bed.  I walked in the room and there were some doctors in there with him.  Then they explained to me that Travis had a brain tumor.  There was no […]

Happy Halloween

October 31st, 2007 · No Comments

Wishing everyone a Happy Halloween!  I am writing today to show you that even though the diagnosis is life changing, life does go on.  I do my best to keep “business as usual” around here.  Being diagnosed does not mean your life is over, it just means that it is going to be a little […]

September 19th, 2007 · 2 Comments

As if my life is not hectic enough.  For those who know me know that I am pretty emotional.  I think about car accidents hours after I witness them.  I make up fake stories in my head about the lives of the people involved.  I know I am crazy but my mind never stops and […]

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 […]

“Lord grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
