a great update

It's that time again..........I know lots of people wonder and don't want to ask, but Travis had his semi-annual MRI and check-up this afternoon.

The past week both of us have felt a bit anxious. I didn't expect anything but good news, but the not knowing can get to me a little.

Thankfully, the news is FANTASTIC........the tumor looks to be about 40% of the original size!!! It's behaving very well.

Travis feels SO good. Life is great, work is busy, our family is happy and everyone is healthy and well. In fact, when concerned friends and family ask, "How do you feel?" honestly, that puts Travis off a bit. Only because he feels completely normal. That tumor doesn't affect how he "feels" at all. We just happen to know it's there.....that's all. Unfortunately, it's hard for others to not let a "brain tumor" define someone they know. "Oh, you know he has a brain tumor, right?"........that kind of definition.

Sorry, I just had to mention that. We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all our friends and family. We are so grateful for the concern and love sent our way. We still appreciate your continued prayers and welcome lemon raspberry bundt cakes. But for the record, Travis is the same Travis and except for our knowledge of the tumor, life is business as usual.

We are truly full of gratitude for this blessed news! Thank you to our wonderful network of supporters......we love you all so much! Most of all, we are thankful to our Heavenly Father....He continues to bless us. We know he loves us and watches over our family.
