Had a real downer on my 70th birthday as my wife was rushed to ED with high fever, it was found that she had sepsis on the gall bladder and kidneys were in danger, they operated and she is reasonably ok but real washed out and weak. All the plans we made for the occasion went down the drain, but she was more important.
Funny, never thought about Pca for last 2 weeks. Being 70 doesn't feel any different and looking back at my PSA think if it stays around 0.6 I will not fall off the perch in the near future, but you never know what is around the corner.
A big hello to all my friends on this Forum, which has been my strength for the last 3 1/2 years.
