Today Travis had his 40th treatment. Ugh. 40.

He is still doing pretty good, and hopefully this weeks treatment doesn't change that. *Thinking happy thoughts and zero cankers...*

He spoke in church on Sunday and I wanted to write a bit on what he spoke on. There is a woman who Trav has met at the cancer center. She got into a car accident a few years ago and is now a paraplegic. And now she is battling breast cancer. She comes in weekly for her treatments, in her wheel chair. She has no strength, she is losing her hair, and she is exhausted. Travis says she is always smiling, and has a great attitude.

I can't even begin to imagine.

So yes, we hate that today he had is 40th treatment. (And I've told him he has HUNDREDS more to go), but we are constantly reminded that there are many, many people who have it worse. We hear their stories often, and Travis meets these new amazing people every week, and we are constantly amazed at some people strength, and the examples they set for us.

This is me finding a silver lining. :)

I suck at updating this thing! But just remember no news is good news!

Since our last update Trav has been in for 2 treatments, (one being done today), and he is feeling pretty good. The cankers have been much less aggressive and his ribs haven't been hurting near as much as well, and we really can't complain.

In December we hit our 1 year treatment mark, what a long year!!!! I am trying to talk Trav into letting me do something fun with him to celebrate. I think he deserves a party or something, being that he has been so amazing this last year! He thinks I'm weird for wanting to throw him a 1 year of cancer mark, I look at it as 1 year of life...but I guess I'm the optimist.

Any ideas for a fun cancer treatment party??? I'm at a loss. Seriously. Ideas?
