I just got back from the Doc and no cancer.

 

PSA is now 1.65, however the Prostrate is large (45 Grams) so he put me on some Med starting with an R to reduce the prostrate.

 

I want to say thank you to everyone for your wisdom, kind words and prayers.

 

My family and I will keep all of you our daily prayers!

 

Walt
