Thanks for the feedback guys. Hope you're both doing well. Dad's been lucky...he's 85 and in generally good health. Had a high PSA reading (6.7), which led to a visit to the urologist. Gleason score was 3 + 3. Saw the doc for the CyberKnife radiation treatment and he thought Dad is a good candidate for the treatment because he's in good overall health. So, we begin the preliminary process next week, and the treatment itself begins the last day of March and through the rest of that week. 5 days of treatment and he's done. I know he's a bit anxious about all of this, and I guess he's a bit concerned whether he'd be able to go on the cruise, which he's looking forward to. So, with your feedback, as well as what the doc has said (and which I'll review with him again), I'll be encouraging Dad to proceed with his vacation plans. And as you say (kdnole) the vacation will be a good follow-up treatment for him, because he'll be relaxing and hopefully having a great time.
