Peace

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.

    The most amazing demonstration of God’s Love is the Peace that truly passes all understanding. We stand with you and believe the miracle are not over. Miracles come in all shapes and sizes. In our minds a cure seems like the ultimate miracle but only God knows the endless abundant miracles He is bestowing upon your family and all who know you through this. It is utterly amazing. We pray for supernatural joy and unending peace through it all. We love you!

    Travis and Carrie, praise you for your peace and absorb every moment. Please know that you have made huge impacts in lives with your story, mine being one of them. I have hugged both your necks a couple times in the past and prayed with you and I want you to know that even though I’m unable to be there, that is exactly what I am doing now. Love Erica

    Your life has touched my life in an amazing way. You are right, this is NOT the end of your story. When you get to heaven, I believe you will hear “well done good and faithful servant”. What an amazing thing to look forward to.

  • Jason Mashburn

    Travis is one in a million and has been best friend for over 22 years. He’s made an huge impact in my life during the entire time that I’ve known him. I’m just glad the world got a glimpse of the great father, husband, friend and leader that he is.

    Here’s a quote from Steve Jobs that Travis shared with me a few months ago and I think it is good advice for anyone.

    “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”

    -Steve Jobs

    Travis and Carrie,

    May God hold you in the palm of his hand. His peace does pass any understanding that we have. I have seen it and am thankful that you are feeling it now. Carrie I pray strength for you, I know that you are a strong Godly woman. This journey has been hard and I am so thankful that you both were so honest and shared it with so many. The impact you have made you may never even know fully, but God has used this for good. Prayers for the whole family, know that love is being sent from all of us who can’t be there for you in person, you have been in my prayers and will continue to be. God be glorified in the journey and I wish you peace and comfort. Enjoy your time together and laugh a lot…..as I recall Travis has a tremendous sense of humor. Have a safe journey HOME….I agree with Michele Harkins that is an amazing thing to look forward to and the words we all want to hear. Godspeed.

    When you are paying 100’s of pounds in interest amount every
    month, that’s more income for them.
