Greetings, everyone.  I just got out of my doc's office with my fifth zero.  This is basically my one year (6 weeks post surgery then every 90 days) anniversary PSA so it continues to be good to get the zero.  Thanks to everybody for their support over this past year.  Together we can support each other and maybe even help a few guys and gals along the way.  I wish I had never had prostate cancer but the comraderie found on this board has definitely been one of the good things.  Thanks everyone.  David
