Thanks to everyone, you guys are great!!
All went well; no reactions, I was a little tired when it was over.

PSA rose a little more (52.02) but that was expected since I stopped Nilandron in late April.
SO now we wait, and pray, and wait, and pray some more!!

All is well though.

P.S. - Walt my feet and hands are freezing!! We got a set from CVS that worked just fine!
