The Little Things

“Dave looks great!”  This is probably the most common comment I hear.  And he does look great.  You certainly would never guess the battle that is occurring within him.  But there are little signs.  He gets winded after walking up the stairs.  He is eating sweets and sugary cereals with a frequency and quantity never before seen.  He will want to turn back for home during a walk because his feet are bothering him.  All little signs that he is working hard every minute of every day to send this cancer packing.

I think we all feel better when we look at Dave and marvel at how strong he looks.  And I think that he does everything in his power to protect us from the reality of how hard it is.  He doesn’t complain.  If you ask him how he is doing, he will say “Great!” It is a daily demonstration of how much he loves his family and friends.

  1. Just caught up on the last week.

    I’m always marveling at how very much the same Dave looks/seems. But I do understand how hard he works for that. And that is what is truly amazing. So much strength in one person…in one family.

  2. They say having an optimistic attitude is a big key in fighting illness, and I think Dave has a big chance of being the miracle we all hope for. He is upbeat when you know in your heart it is, at times, a struggle for him, but you also get the feeling that all things are possible as long as you believe. He has shown such character and strength throughout this as has Robyn!

  3. Your Mom is so right, and so is Dave – the key to winning this battle is optimism and determination. The power of the mind is amazing, and so is your husband. I am in awe of anyone who can stay so upbeat when faced with such a battle.
