Two of our PC brothers in the news…

Charlie Daniels (country singer) suffered mild stroke yesterday.

Jim Calhoun (UConn basketball coach) announced medical leave of absence yesterday.

Best wishes to both…

I love that quote about 'PC is like a rattlesnake in your pocket'...true CD-type quote. However, in light of recent lively discussion here about AS, maybe that should be re-phrased.

1981, Stephen C. O'Connell Center on the campus of University of Florida. I sat in the front row, on the center aisle. Me and the person on the other side of the aisle also in the front row had the best 2 seats among the other 12,000 people in attendance to see CDB. He tore up that fiddle.

I've seen him (Charlie). Amazing. My musical tastes are very broad. Good music and good talent are not genre dependent. I love rock, hard rock, country, blues, flamenco...well, all. Charlie...an exceptional player.
-Nov/Dec 07, March 08 and Dec 08: Severe perineum pain . Septra/Bactrim for 8 months for diagnosed prostatitis.
-PSA start of 2008: 5.3..... PSA June of 2008: 7.3
-14 DRE all benign or nothing felt
-TRUS Biopsy Nov 08: 5 of 8 cores positive GS 3+3 or 6. 30-65%. Perineural invasion.
-General Health: pretty good, 5' 10", 180 lbs, slim.
-Open RP surgery: May 09 both nerve bundles spared. Bilateral lymph node dissection performed. Discharged 48 hours after surgery.
-Post Surgery Pathology: pT3a N0 MX, extraprostatic extension (EPE), stage III prostate cancer, lymph nodes clear, seminal vesicles clear, Gleason upraded to 3+4 GS 7. EPE within surgical margins. Other than prostate and EPE, all tissue removed negative for cancer involvement.
-Bladder control within 48 hours of catheter removal
-ED ongoing but improving significantly with Trimix at 7 months post-op. Oral ED meds didn't do much.

I remember taking my wife to see CDB, like on our third date. She is 5 years younger and was not a country fan. We were in front row aisle seats, and a lady came up and crouched down right next to us wither her camera. Charlie was performing "Simple Man" in a chair ten feet from us and he saw her and posed for her right in the middle of the song. The guy is a breath of fresh air among many "stuck up" musicians who would have had the lady thrown out for the attempt to take a picture.

I saw the very same thing in an Alan Jackson concert (my wife regularly attends country concerts with me now) when he pulled up a little girl who was holding a sign that said "Alan please take a picture with me". She was on the stage with him dancing when he performed "Good Time"...he gave her a guitar...I bet the parents got some great shots.

Oops, sorry I almost forgot this is a PCa forum... You rock, Charlie!
