It's Dave's birthday, it's Dave's birthday...

Dave would probably have my head if he knew I was writing this, but I figured after everthing the man has gone through in the last 2 1/2 months, the world should know that it's his birthday! Yesterday, he was walking through the kitchen and looked at the calendar on the wall. He goes, "If I hadn't just looked at the calendar and seen that tomorrow was my birthday, I wouldn't have had any idea it was coming up." We made an arrangement that I'll make his favorite German Chocolate Cake later on, anytime he wants it and can enjoy it...
Yesterday was a little bit better for Dave in case you're wondering. The nausea had subsided a bit but he was soooooo tired. Today through Saturday marks the phase when his white cells drop to their lowest, so hopefully he'll pull through it with no high fever or trips to the ER.
Well, I'm off to get the boys ready for school. Have a good day, hopefully the birthday boy will too! ;-)

Happy Birthday! It might not go down as the best in history, but it will be memorable. Do something to make it special, even if it's something small!

When this crap is all over you can throw a party for the ages next year for your birthday!

Happy Birthday Dave!

We are celebrating a birthday on my son's Caring Bridge page as well!,

We are praying that God give you, and your family, the strength to walk through your journey every day. You are doing great!

I wish you could meet some of the children we have met through our journey. You would be amazed and inspired! Children who are battling leukemia, brain tumors, and, sarcomas on their femurs! It's amazing how strong God makes his smallest of warriors! Our youngest warrior friend is 11 months old, and is battling a brain tumor.

We think about you, and pray for you often, you're doing great! Keep moving forward, one day at a time...

Love,

Annmarie Keogh
