Just got the results of last Tuesday's PSA. ZERO. Doxology. Actually, the urologist's office said "less than .04", so I take that to be zero. All my previous PSAs were by my oncologist/hematologist. He reported "undetectable". Guess that is all the same.
 
I follow this board every day, and while I do not post very much, I feel very close to so many of you guys (and ladies) who have helped me along the way. Bless each of you!
 
Praying for the day when we are all rolling zeroes, and this beast is beaten forever.

Thanks David,

We are keeping our fingers crosssed for the Chargers. But after seeing some very good teams fold, they better bring their A game with them Sunday.

Just wanted to say, David, you are one of those who has helped me so much. I have followed your challenges. Your persistence, optimism, and ability to see humor in our circumstances has been a blessing. I'm sure many others would echo that.

Love you, brother.

Bill

There for you too, Bill, we are all in this together, same Cancer, different paths with different twists and turns. Not going to let it destroy my heart and soul, despite the unpleasant parts.

Great numbers Bill. Keep up the great work and hope you continue to post from time to time. I missed most of the Green Bay and Arizona game yesterday, but saw the overtime. 92 points in a game so I guess everyone got their money's worth.
