Well after waiting all weekend with a fax sitting in my Dr.s office with the results, I'm feeling on air.  PSA 0.02, better than the previous one.  Thanks for all the support from my caring friends on the forum.  I'ts been a long and sometimes uneasy journey.  Your kind words and advice based on your own personal experience is invaluable to me. Thanks again.

Don't you hate it when you know the doc has the results sitting in his office and you're on pins and needles waiting to hear the hoped for good news.  Thanks for sharing your good news with us--it was worth the wait to get it!   Tim
