1 Year Anniversary of Travis’ Brain Surgery! 3/7/2014

It was Thursday, March 7th, 2013 and Tyler woke up that morning and created a video for Travis so that he could see our dog Cisco, his room, all of his toys and the rest of our house.  It was really nice that Tyler did that and he kept telling Travis that everything was going to […]

1 Year Anniversary of Travis’ Brain Tumor Diagnosis! 3/6/2014

On Wednesday, March 6th, 2013, we woke up in the hospital and found out that the doctors wanted to do an additional MRI of Travis’ head and full spine.  They had done an MRI of his head on Tuesday and wanted to do a more detailed scan.  Tony remembered thinking that it didn’t sound good […]

1 Year Anniversary of Travis’ Hospital Admittance! 3/4/2014

Since this is a very special time for us in terms of memorable 1 Year Anniversaries, we wanted to take a moment to highlight each one as they occurred.  On Monday, March 4th, 2013, Travis was admitted to Rady Children’s Hospital in the evening for some tests to be run.  He had a difficult weekend […]

UCSD Men’s Soccer End of Season Party! 2/22/2014

Sorry!  It has been a while since our last post.  With getting back to somewhat of a normal routine, besides all the appointments, medications and lab work, it is easy to forget that it is important to slow down and write some things down.  In the midst of State Cup Soccer, Soccer Tryouts, School, Work, […]

This is What Getting Back to Normal is Like! 2/4/2014

Monday was a big day in our house and a big step towards getting back to a normal routine.   Over the last couple of weeks, Lynne and Travis had been going over to school for an hour or two each day, when they didn’t have appointments, to start preparing for Travis to go back to […]

State Cup Soccer Weekend! 1/27/2014

What an exciting weekend of soccer at State Cup!  After a disappointing 1-0 loss on Saturday against the TVSA Hawks, we weren’t sure how the boys would bounce back.  The important thing was that we played some good soccer even though we couldn’t get the goals to go and had 1 bad break that we […]

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 […]
