Posted 2 days ago
Hey everyone, I have some good news......WE ARE HOME!!! and Travyn is doing great!!! He is a different little boy since we have been home from the hospital. Seriously, I believe he knows that he is home and thats why he is doing so well. Thanks to all the prayers!!!
Travyn's 1st birthday was yesterday and what a great Birthday it was! We were sent home from the hospital by noon so we had the whole day to celebrate. We just had a little family Birthday party because Tray cant be around big crowds and such for 3 months. (Doctors orders) It was alot of fun, and Tray just loved to rip the wrapping paper. I think he just loved the sound of the paper ripping. Anyway, Can I just say, WOW! what a rollar coaster of a year this has been!!!!! It has been the BEST and WORST year at the same time.BEST- Because my beautiful baby boy was born and he changed my life forever. Travyn has completley made me a better person and he has helped me get to know myself better. He has helped me realize that its not just about me and that I live for someone else now. I absoulutley LOVE being a Mom and I wouldnt trade it for the world. WORST- Because when Travyn was only 4 months old, he was diagnosed with a life threating disease. My world came crashing down into a million little pieces and my heart was broken. I thought I was never going to make through to the next day. It was bad!!! I honestly dont like to say WORST because this trial has taught me so much and I wouldnt be who I am today if it wasnt for this hardship. I love who I am today and what we have been through has made ME so strong. My son and I are so close and our bond is unbreakable. Travyn is my best friend and I love him with all my heart.
But, as for now Travyn is progressing and healing very well from his 5 cycles of intense Chemotherapy, 28 sessions of radiation and his 3 stem-cell replacments. He is a FIGHTER and MY HERO!!!! We love Travyn and we couldnt be more proud of him........HE DID IT!!!! WE ARE DONE!!!now, we just need to pray pray pray that his MRI scan that they will be doing in 100 days will look fantastic and be clean and clear. I know that 100 days to wait until we see that my son is CANCER FREE seems like forever. but it will fly by.....the chemo is still doing its job and will until we do the MRI. :)
I just want to thank all of you for the prayers that have been offered in our behalf. I know I've said it so many times but THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR LOVE AND SUPPORT AND YOUR NEEDED PRAYERS!!!!
love you all,Whitney
