Latest MRI Results are All Clear! 9/3/2015

In case you haven’t heard over the last couple weeks, Travis’ latest MRI results came back CLEAR!  They are clear in terms of our favorite phrase “No Sign of Disease” (aka No Sign of Cancer) and they are also clear regarding his Compression Fracture in his T9 Vertebrae.  YEAH!!!

It has been almost a year since they detected his compression fracture in his spine last September and we received the dreaded “No Running or Jumping” order from the doctors.  As it turns out, that is like torture for a kid to see all his friends running, jumping and playing all the time and knowing he can’t participate.  But Travis, like the true Warrior he is, powered through and made the best of things by as he says “running in my mind” while he was race walking and even cheating a little here and there.  Yes, Mom and Dad have eyes in the back of their head and ears listening to EVERYTHING!  Along with the all clear order came another year of Fosomax which is a bone strengthener for osteoporosis or brittle bones.  In the grand scheme of things, what’s the big deal with continuing the pill as long as you can run and jump, right?

So, leaving the doctor’s office that day, the first thing Travis did was RUN down the hallway.  Then he proceeded to RUN across the parking lot to the car.  When he got home, he went for a RUN around the block.  Then he went out to the soccer field to RUN around and even RUN some laps.  It was like he had been set free!  The doctors still want to hold off from doing any contact sports until his bones are strengthened more so we will deal with that.  Overall, things are good and Travis is a Warrior!
