Dave’s been running the longest cancer race ever; like NASCAR, where the cars keep going around and around the track, lap after lap after lap. “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize” (1 Cor. … Continue reading 8/17 Dave’s Testimony: Cancer Racer Crashes… Pit Stop Prayer Team Sets in Motion More NASCAR Laps to Go!

7/29 Dave’s Testimony: Sorrowful Cancer Scan Results and Strength Through Jesus Tee Shirts

We find out early, before Friday’s appointment with the oncologist. Dave has had chemo on Monday and felt terrible afterwards.

The last two to three weeks have been so crazy: packing for 4-H camp, going all the way to North Carolina to pick up a new puppy, picking up my daughter from camp and finding out she has Covid; and then caring for both Dave (who had chemo again) and Abby (quarantined in her room) … Continue reading 7/19 Dave’s Testimony: Cancer, Covid, Camp, and a New Puppy… That’s how we roll!

6/19 Dave’s Testimony: Dad has Cancer (Next Day is Chemo) Happy Father’s Day!!!

At 3 a.m., this morning, I wish Dave a Happy Father's Day. We're not sleeping... again. He says, "Thanks," and it warms my heart. It's what we always do on holiday "eves."

6/3 Dave’s Testimony: Cancer, Chemo, Clots, Credit, and Chaotic Car Conversations

This week is the 4th course of chemo. There are IV fluids, iron infusions for anemia, and a new side effect... annoying hiccups. Last off-chemo week, Dave didn't feel as well at all. Chemo is cumulative; meaning my husband will probably feel worse, and have to endure more side effects, as he continues treatment for … Continue reading 6/3 Dave’s Testimony: Cancer, Chemo, Clots, Credit, and Chaotic Car Conversations

5/16 Dave’s Testimony: Clouds, Cancer, Christ: God is in Control!

I've always been fascinated by clouds. My favorites are the puffy, white ones which come to hang out among the brightest blue skies upon a breezy, sunny day! But there are also separated, scattered clouds and rolling clouds (Dave's favorite) wispy clouds, and yellow clouds with golden rays shining through. There are pink cotton candy … Continue reading 5/16 Dave’s Testimony: Clouds, Cancer, Christ: God is in Control!
