Lament for my Little Buddy
You came to me when I need you the most
In my darkest hour whilst I was asleep
You hung around and never left my side
But alas you were a friendship not to keep
You would irate me while I sat
And would rub me wrong while I walk
You interfered with my bed time rest
And every where I went you would stalk
And now the time has come to pass
You are finally gone from me for good
A celebration for me you can clearly see
So what I say is easily understood
Okay...just a joke...but hooray...the catheter is gone...man was that a long two weeks...but am I glad. I feel so much better now and now the real recovery begins. Will be back to work on Monday with no restrictions.
The path report was good with a minor blip of having a positive margin (in signature)...but we will keep an eye on the PSA and if it rears it's ugly head again, then I have various salvage treatments available. But for now, I believe I am going to be one of the lucky ones that will remain cancer free.
Doctor ordered a PSA test in three weeks, which I thought was unusual, I thought it was supposed to be at three months for the first one...oh well...no big deal.
A big thanks to all here, you have made the entire process of having cancer, and then surgery and now the healing so much easier to handle and made it not as scary as the word cancer sounds.
