Well, I tried to get a rest from this prostate thing and I found my self reading the posts everyday anyway. Being frustrated, worried, sympathatic and just downright concerned for everyone. I wanted to move on and not think about it but I realize if it wasn't for this place and all the wonderful people here, I wouldn't have made it. And neither would Kent because he relied on me and all the passing on of information I got from y'all. I need to be here to help if I am able to. We have been thru it so I understand most of the pain. We have been very blessed and I know others have not always had that. I hope no one minds that I'm back to give my 2 cents worth from time to time. You all have given me so much and I want to stay here. If I can help someone in just the tiniest part of what was done for us...well that would be all I want.
