Summer has Come and is Almost Gone! 8/17/2014

Back in June, we remember saying that it would not be so long until the next time we posted an update.  But, here we are again delinquent in our writing and finding ourselves having a hard time trying to remember what happened last week, let alone 2 months ago.  The summer has come and flown […]

Celebration of Champions, Padres Game, 25th Anniversary and More! 6/6/2014

The last time we posted an update, we said that it would not be so long until the next one.  Yet, here we are again and time has flown by so fast, it is hard to keep up with.  During these last few weeks, we attended the Celebration of Champions and San Diego Padres game. […]

Counts, Weight, Appetite and Energy are on the Rise! 1/21/2014

It is hard to believe that it has been almost 2 weeks since our last update but time has flown by for us.  Travis had lab work done yesterday and his counts are rising closer to the “Normal” range and moving up from the “Chemo” range.  Yeah!  We know it can take some time for […]

A Little Divine Intervention! 1/8/2014

On Thursday, we had our appointment with the Neuro-Oncologist and had lab work done to check Travis’ counts.  The good news is that most of his counts are stabilizing after the chemo and we did not need to do a transfusion.  The White Blood Count is slowly rising but still has a ways to go […]

Happy New Year! 1/2/2014

Happy New Year everyone!!!  It is hard to believe it is 2014 already but we are glad that we are putting 2013 in our rear view mirror.  It has been a challenging yet amazing year in so many ways.  We have faced so many obstacles, especially Travis, but we tried to take them one at […]

Merry Christmas! 12/25/2013

We want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas!  As we sit here enjoying all that Christmas means and brings, we received another bit of good news on Christmas Eve that we are thankful for. On Monday, we went down to Rady’s to have Travis’ blood work checked and his quarterly MRI.  It turned […]

Counts are Down so We are Hanging Around! 12/22/2013

On Friday, we were back down at Rady’s to have blood work done and Travis’ counts have dropped from Tuesday.  So, we have to keep a low profile this weekend and try to get through this final dip without getting sick.  We were planning to go to the San Diego Sockers game (professional arena soccer) […]

Thank You So Much El Camino Creek! 12/20/2013

Hi Everyone, Once again, we are at a complete loss of words because they just don’t seem to be enough to express how thankful we are to be surrounded by such a great community. Now that we have completed Travis’ last round of chemotherapy, we know we still have some of this journey left to […]

A Big Christmas Wish Comes True! 12/18/2013

We went down on Tuesday morning and the check-in process went smoothly.  Since Travis has been having some slight irritation issues with the incision area of his port, we had to get approval to go ahead and access to be able to do the infusion.  There was some hesitation and double checking but the final […]

It’s Game On! 12/9/2013

After Round 5, Travis was scheduled to start his 6th and Final round of chemo tomorrow but when we had his counts checked on Friday, they were low and we rescheduled to try and start on Friday, 12/13 (yes, that is Friday the 13th but we do what we have to do).  So, we set […]
