His Final Father’s Day

We are at the hospital. It just wasn’t possible to control Dave’s pain at home and he was increasingly anxious because he was struggling to breathe. He is now resting as comfortably as possible with a better oxygen mask and IV pain killers and anti-anxiety meds.

  1. Hugs and prayers to you & Dave.. Even though you question your strength, you have such grace and determination. My heart goes out to you and your children.

  2. It may not feel like it, but the hospital is the best place for both of you (all of you) right now……..Robyn this is one of the worst, most tragic things that could ever happen to a person and I am so sorry it is happening to you and your children……Praying for you all…….We are all here for you….Just let us know what you need and we will answer……Lisa

  3. You babies are snugly tucked in and sound asleep in Burke, and the four legged kids and other critters are under Matt’s care in Reston… Dave is hopefully resting comfortably and I so hope you will be able to rest too! Love you all, Mom xoxoxoxoxo

  5. Oh how I wish if known of your journey earlier so I could’ve prayed for you all and could’ve left encouraging words for you here. I’m one of Laura’s readers and have only known about your story for maybe a week or two now, but it’s affected me deeply. My thoughts and prayers are with you through the night.

  6. Hugs to you both, hope he is getting some relief. Praying for you all constantly and glad the kids are with Gramma and Gee. Love you my pet.

  7. The Fetter family is praying along with others that Dave will be comfortable and can get some rest. Praying for strength for you and the children, Robyn, for comfort and love from God and your friends. Let me know what I can do to help.

  8. I pray the doctors and nurses continue to meet Dave’s needs to allow him to be as comfortable as possible. I pray for peace and understanding for you and the entire family.

  9. Love, light and blessings … you are surrounded by all three. Continuing to pray for Dave and you, your family / friends and healthcare providers. As with Dave’s career, it appears as though he has another great team surrounding him now. Thank you for sharing this part of his/your journey.

  10. sending prayers for comfort for Dave and strength and understanding for the fam (but does understanding really help with a loss??) praying for whatever you feel you need

  11. …also fervently praying for you and your family, Robyn, as well as for the medical staff that is helping Dave right now. Thank you for taking the time to give us an update. Your family is loved by many.

  12. Robyn – I can’t imagine how difficult this is for you and your family. You and your family are on my thoughts and prayers.

  13. I’m praying you will continue to find the strength to deal with all this and to help Dave and the children through this. You are all so loved. I hope you can feel that love now and take comfort in it.

  14. Dave Tremaine is a legend, and one of my heroes. I met Tree when I was 18 and he was 20. Whether playing hoops, golfing, or rocking out to our favorite bands and songs, he has always found the positive energy in every moment. I’ve never met anybody so inspirational when it comes to making people believe in themselves and reminding us that life is fun. Fortunately he was able to pursue a career in education, and judging by the comments I’ve read from some of his students and co-workers, they have all experienced what I’m talking about. Unfortunately he is currently in the hospital fighting what looks to be terminal cancer. I have been praying for a miracle, and I hope that everyone who reads this will too. The world is a better place with Tree in it, but either way, he is a constant reminder to spread your length, and love the moment. Mark Bryan
