Tommorow, I take the 9 month post surgery psa that i requested after the last two showed an increase to .1 and .11. I am going to ask to have results phoned to me so I don't have to wait a week or more. Also, tommorow is the one week mark to the corrective surgery, so much fun ahead.
On topping of crashing my car, my 5 year old laptop died last night for good, when I was about to check in with you guys. Think the display is fried. On someone elses right now, and of course, being out of work, can't afford to buy another one.
When it rains, it pours.
Got a call today for a good close by job interview. One hour later, the woman called back and said forget, they had just hired someone. Love these kinds of days.
