I haven't posted for a while, but there hasn't been much to report.  My husband is still on AS, and he is going to have a repeat biopsy and a screening colonoscopy in January.  Regardless of what the biopsy shows, he will not be able to have his brachy until May or June, in order to allow enough time to reduce the inflammation after the biopsy.
In the meantime, we're heading to ZIHUATANEJO for a whole MONTH!! 
Keep well,

Have fun. I've been to Puerto Vallarta a dozen times and am looking forward to going next year with the gang.

We go to Puerto Vallarta every February (first half); our friends go to Zihua in late January and then join us in P.V.  We're looking forward to it.  Have fun, relax, soak up the sun, and try to forget about PCa issues.

Z-town is a GREAT place..It's not COMPLETELY over-run yet, except when cruise ships disgorge their cargo on the town pier..You can rent a car at the airport fairly cheaply and explore up and down the coast 75 miles in either direction..There are some really cool little spots along the coast. Work on your Spanish! It's makes a big difference..
