Judging by the happy photos of Michael Douglas on family outings during the last week, the actor is determined to make sure life goes on as normal for his kids.
And as he recovers from throat cancer, the 66-year-old is already thinking ahead to getting back to work.
As his father Kirk Douglas revealed last week, Michael has signed up for a Liberace biopic.
The film – which also stars Matt Damon - retells the life story of the flamboyant concert pianist.
Michael will learn in January if his tumour has been eliminated.
Doctors have told him the kind of cancer he has carries an 80 per cent cure rate.
