Happy New Year!

Well, it's been a while since Dave (or I) have made a post and I wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year. I don't think Dave will mind me making a post, since he's usually asked, "When are you going to update your blog?" and this is one less post he'll need to make!

Everything has actually been pretty great as of late. I know Dave is just in the middle of his fight against cancer, but it seems since the chemo is done, his appetite has returned to normal, his strength is returning, that life is good. I know we're still fighting the beast of cancer, but it's just nice that things are "normal" even if it's for a little while.

Our family had a nice Christmas, quiet, just the four of us, but that's what we requested. The boys loved their gifts, building their K'nex with Dave's help and playing new Xbox games. We went to see Dave's family in Knoxville, TN the next day and had a wonderful weekend with them. The last time we were in Knoxville was when Dave's sister saw his left thigh (the "big muscle" as we called it) and got the whole ball rolling with this cancer thing. We're still so thankful we made that trip in June and that Dave didn't wait any longer to get his leg looked at.

Dave went to Emory this past Tuesday for the 1st Simulation for the Radiation Therapy. He now has nice "Sharpie" marks on his thighs...don't want those to come off, that's for sure! He has another appointment next Monday with the Radiation Oncologist and then the radiation will begin.

So, here's to wishing all of you a Happy Healthy 2009. Thanks to all of you for your prayers and continued support.
