I am kinda early, but we have been by the cancer center and drawn the tests.  I won't know until tomorrow.  I am posting early for a reason.  I am getting used to this and I am no longer feeling the anxiety before a test.  The fear does go away.  I have a glass of wine out tonight, I have looked back and reflected in this whole ordeal, and what a long strange trip it's been...(LOL, I like vitamin C, but not that other stuff, I wonder how many will get this)  Tonight I am in "so what" mode.  I will play my hour again on guitar, study what I won't say, go to bed, wake up, and head to NVCI to see my oncologist.  My "it is what it is" is working well.  I should be home by 1:00pm.  I will be back in this thread and let you all know...
 
I should also be sitting funny after another jab from the Ms. Lancelot and the Lupron sword (dull). 
 
I have been blessed with good results so far.  And I have every reason to believe I am in good hands.
 
I sure do love you all... tongue

Well I am back from the doctors office.  My PSA was <0.1.  Hooray!!!
 
My doctor did say, however, that we continue the Lupron in May.  He did say we will review all options then, but I don't want to continue it.  We'll see, I guess.  This much is true, all the prayers for me are working.  I will officially pass my second year with an undetectable PSA on March 23.  We did not know that we would, but we will.  Thank you all for the kind loving support you have unselfishly given me.  You are all huge in my heart...
 
kcragman, you just gave away a bunch of imformation about your past!  You win the brownie button for picking up on where I pulled that from....lolol

Hi Tony,
Great News. I am so glad for you, maybe you can keep those rolling for years to come. I could hear the sigh of relief all the way to Alabama.....lol. I finished my Salvage IGRT today with no major side effects to date. Now all I have to do is wait for the psa in a few months. My oncologist Doc said 6 months but I suspect I will be finding out before then as I wont be able to stand the wait. Maybe my Is what it is will be working good by then. My oldest son is a trauma RN in Chicago and that is one of his favorite sayings also. Well you take care and go out and celebrate tonight.

Good grief Tony I was trying to free up some space in the Zero Club to make room for some new folks. now with this news I will have to figure out how to keep your spot open. It is tough being the self appointmented president of the club.
haha my attempt at humor is not as good as you and Todd.
WAY TO GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, Tony I am so excited for you. Thanks for all you do, and I truly pray that you will defeat this giant forever.

peace and love
Dale
