There is peace flowing through the Roberts’ household. A peace that surpasses all understanding. Even the understanding of those of us who know Christ’s peace.
On Wednesday morning Travis went to the emergency room. He just couldn’t breathe. Well…he could breathe. But his breaths couldn’t seem to get enough oxygen in them. Despite having been on oxygen for the last two weeks.
Travis was transferred to a room in ICU. His lungs were filling with fluid and blocking his ability to absorb oxygen. There were two possibilities…pneumonia or cancer. The hope and prayer was for pneumonia. 24 hours of treatment would determine if it was.
It was not.
CT scans and XRays did not show tumors so there was hope that it was not cancer. But as it turns out it is cancer in his lymphatic system. Not his lymph nodes…but his lymphatic system. Those small lymphatic vessels that run through his lung tissue are filling up with fluid being produced by the cancer cells and blocking the absorption of oxygen.
But ask Trav how he is feeling and the answer is always the same…
I feel good!
What an amazing man.
Travis gets to come home today and be with his family…surrounded by love. Hospice has been set up and Travis has everything he needs to be comfortable.
And I can tell you this…
He is so peaceful.
Carrie is so thankful for everyone’s support and love and she asks for your continued patience and forgiveness if she is slow to respond to texts, calls, and emails. Please respect this precious time for the Roberts as they ask people not to visit.
And so the prayer request is this.
Pray for peace and comfort for the whole family and for all of #TravsArmy.
Trav has touched so many. Changed so many in the past fifteen months. There are so many stories that will come out in the next several weeks of the impact Travis has had. But there are some who will have questions…doubts…confusion over the ending of this story. Trav would want you to pray for those and that his story would not add to their confusion or doubts but only help walk them through them. Because the peace that Trav has, the unexplainable peace that he is experiencing, tells him this.
This is not the end of the story. It’s only the beginning of the next chapter.
