Dear, dear Sonny. I have just opened and read your first post concerning Lynn, and then, best I could with blurry eyes, I then read it haultingly to my wife, who when she was able to get out some words through her own choking tears said I must write and tell you we are both praying for you --- and so, with 43 years of wedded bliss founded on doing what I'm told, I write to give you that assurance, although truth is, I'd have been doing so instantly anyways.
I am very pleased to read that you are plunging ahead with your radiation, especially as you are apparently in world class, excellent hands. While the treatment period may be difficult from both a time and energy level to give Lynn the support you must, long term you can't risk letting your PCa get needlessly away on you and really compromising your ability to support.
