Well, a year has passed and it is time for the one year PSA. I feel more confident about this one than the previous ones, but still a little nervous, I guess that feeling never goes away. I would like to offer a genuine heartfelt thanks to everyone here, you are all family and I Love you all.

Randy--I'm hoping for another undetectable for you at the one-year mark!  I still get butterflies, sweaty palms and anxious, irrational thoughts when it's time for my semi-annual PSA. 

Take care and hang in there...Tim
