Tomorrow we will know exactly where Travis' final gift went tonight. We were at the hospital once more this evening to kiss our sweet boy one more time. Please continue to pray that his kidneys reach the recipient and that the recipient will be able to live on.
So sorry to hear of your loss, praying for your family during this time that god will give you strength. And your angel's gift lives on.ReplyDelete
What an amazingly beautiful gift. You are wonderful parents and I am humbled by your generosity.ReplyDelete
Travis, you are a true angel! Your Parents are amazing. I have followed your incredible life through a friends FB page, and through your own. My heart is broken. I am a mother of a boy who was born with congenitally diseased kidneys. From the time I was 5 months pregnant, a renal transplant was always a possibility. Like your parents, I have had days and nights of not sleeping, eating or functioning. The worring and fears consumed my life for many years. Fortunatley for him, surgery has been able to spare the remaining kidney function he has, and he is doing just fine. The gift you have given is the most selfless act. Travis you will live on the the life of another child who has suffered until now. I wish that I could put my arms around you and your parents. You have touched my life, and one day I hope to meet you in Heaven.ReplyDelete

May God keep you close and comfort you as you travel this journey. What an amazing gift you are sharing with others. Sending lots of thoughts and prayers, love and hugs.ReplyDelete

I am so sorry for your loss.
I must also say that Travis gift is a true miracle. As a daughter with kidney issues that could one day lead to a transplant, reading this makes me smile.
You are a wonderful mama and Travis, a true angel <3
I am so sorry for your unimaginable loss. You showed such amazing grace and strength in making the difficult decision to be separated from your son so his organs could be taken for donation. It is such a selfless act and I do hope that you find some comfort knowing that part of him lives on to help others. My prayers are with you as you navigate this very difficult time.ReplyDelete

I'm crying right now, feeling the loss of your sweet boy in my own small way too...as I'm sure are many he touched, because you were so generous to share his story with us.
