Hi Everyone,
 
Today's beer tasted really, really good!  (A big bottle of Fat Tire Amber Ale).  It was the best one I've had in three months.
Blood draw results today: psa of < 0.1 at 6 weeks post surgery.
Thanks to all of your support and that of my family and friends I hope to have weathered the worst of this battle.
 
Remember to p often when celebrating.

So funny that you mention "beer". I just saw Pomegrante Raspberry flavored beer last night in a magazine. I think it is Michelob. Anyways, I chuckled and thought maybe that is how I can get my dad to get his pom. :) Cheers to you!!
