Well, the news was not what we wanted to hear today. PSA up to 14 this month. So, it's on to chemo. I guess it's time we started paying the aces that we have held up our sleeves.
Both Johnnie (my loving wife) and I are fine. Had the big cry earlier and are over it now. Don't you just hate gettin' hit by busses. We picked ourselves up and are ready to continue the fight.
One thing that I do want to say to all of my dear friends here is that your strength has always helped me and will continue to help me in my fight. With your help, and the Grace and Love of Jesus Christ, I will win this battle and win the war.
You know sometimes you just have to sit back and laugh at all this and thank God for what we have and what He has given us. My faith is strong and I still believe that there is a purpose for all of this.
I will keep you all informed as we start chemo next Thursday. I think next weekend is pretty well messed up now. At least I'll get out of yard work. There is a silver lining for every dark cloud.
I love you all and the War Eagle spirit still soars,
