First thank you to (Izzyblizzy) for her warm wishes. I am expounding on her post just a few moments ago. Like her and her husband, last year was a very difficult Christmas for me. I had heard just five days before Christmas that I had cancer. I remember what I felt and I pray that you new to this disease have a great Christmas, and Holiday season. We just didn't know what would happen. I had a bad PSA of 19.8 and was just thinking the worst. Well I am OK. And I wish I could go back and get that very valuable Joy that goes with Christmas. But instead, I post to you new guys and wives and tell you, that you will be able to have that Christmas/Holiday so much more meaningful than ever. May your holiday wishes come true. May you have your loved ones with you. And May God Bless you.
