“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.
