Love You Dad! Sending you positive energy and love...

Got my money on you, David.

We're all betting on you Big D! Hang in there. We're all praying for you Buddy.

Don't you dare give up now, Dad. You're a fighter. You always have been, so go kick some cancer (and C-diff) butt. Love you and I'll see you soon. Thanks for reading my blog. Maybe you should turn your blogs into a book of memoirs. Just a thought.

We miss you when you don't have a post for a few days. We are praying for you and Sherry. Please take care of yourself and we look forward to hearing your doing better and out of the hospital.

As always, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers on a daily basis. I'll put my money on you any day!
You are important on many levels to so many people..your willingness to share your life, the good, the bad and the such a gift to all of us. If I had a magic would get the first "wave"!

David. So you had to go get the latest technology again. I-phone,
I-pods, I-casts were not enough for you. You had to have the
e-diff. Well well. There is some great spin waiting for you on this one. Let's see...e-diff, what the diff, no diff, i-diff, yo-diff, diff-off!! You've got this one diffed for sure! There it is. E-diff makes no diff cause D iFF been playin' his riffs. Roll'em. I bettin'!

Holy Cow David if it is not one thing it another. C-diff well go figure. All I can say is "hang in there David" and fight the fight. You are certainly going through your trials and tribulations. Thanks for the update and we are all here for you in thoughts and prayers.

Dave, I am a faithful reader of your blog. My husband has ARCC which is what brought me to your blog. Your wonderful spirit, terrific humor and good writing keeps me coming back. You must turn this experience into a book. It would benefit many people. You are in my prayers and I am definitely betting on you! Bobby

Hi Dave, CANCER SUCKS! I hate to hear that you have been bombarded again with sorry news, but I will bet on you! Some prayer won't hurt either. I will remember you and your wife, because being a caregiver myself I know that this battle includes her too. Hang in there fellow warrior

Dear Dave, Thanks for posting. I was worried about you. I will be praying that the bacterial infection gets cleared up quickly and that you can start the Torisel. I for sure am betting on you. Robbie

Great hearing from you again, was so worried. Sorry you are having an extra battle to fight beside the darn RCC, but remember YOU CAN FIGHT THIS! You have so many friends praying for you..........feel our prayers and heal good man!
