Especially Tony, Dale, Walt, David, Di, James, and David, as well as all you other new people and people my small pea of a brain cant seem to remember. I am so lousy at names. How is pete doing. How is everyone. Tony you really should come snowmobiling. I myself am in limbo. I dont know if going off of the casodex is having any affect on the dreaded psa. My Dr. cancelled my last appt. saying it was too early. I hate waiting. I dont want to have pca. I want to be normal. Todd
