Hugs and warm thoughts to you and your hubby. I know this is a frightening thing and you know how guys are about talking about stuff so they do tend to just bottle it all up. I know this must be making your anxiety harder to deal with as well. I worked for a pathology department at the hospital for many years and saw tons of these biopsies and most all were negative. As Gramps said, there are a lot of reasons his PSA could be elevated. I'm holding you and your hubby close to my heart and wishing on my lucky star for a good outcome.
Thank you my friends and help me keep a realistic perspective on this......
I can catastrophsize things as my background as an ER nurse has many memories of the bad but also of the good outcomes of the thousands of patients I have worked with.
My hubby is special and seeing him worry is hard, but I am tough and I know how to pray too.
Oh Kitt you used to be an ER nurse. Then your mind probably goes to the worst possible scenarios as mine does. That is why I left the pathology department as every little symptom I had grew to be a huge bad monster of a sickness in my head. Sniffles turned into could I have cancer or something. I know exactly where you are coming from. My family thinks I should get out of the healthcare field as I have learned much just thru the fact I work at a hospital (no schooling) and they do not think it is the best place for someone with anxiety and ocd to be working (yep, germ-o-phobe me works at a hospital).
We are here for you.
Thank you so much everyone. I appreciate the prayers and kind thoughts. I am a bit in panic mode right now as the Urologists office just called for my hubby and of course now days they will not give info to me. I am sure it is just some simple question they have for my hubby but I hate this feeling of helplessness. My hubby is not home.
I am a firm believer in the power of prayer and I know you are all here so thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Thanks all for the prayers. Gramps I would love a cruise, but how about you and me? My hubby was a sailor and said he is not getting on any more boats. I have been on cruises with granddaughters and also a girlfriend and had a wonderful time. I love the ocean.
Wish I was there right now.
Hugs to all for your support.Kitt
