July 13th, 2009 · 7 Comments

Since July 13, 2007 Travis has had too many medical appointments to count. He has been on too much medication, especially pain medication. He has been on Oxycontin, Duragesic pain patches, […]

Speechless…that pretty much sums up how we have been feeling since last week. Speechless followed by thankful. The last two years have been filled with many challenges, difficult days and nights, and lots of worries and stress.

The Show Must Go On!!!!

February 10th, 2008 · No Comments

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 […]

December 10th, 2007 · 2 Comments
