Just got back from my checkup.  My PSA is still undetectable!!! I wish it would get easier each time I go but it doesn't.
 
I am very Thankful for my health, Family, Friends, and my fellow Healing Well Brothers!!!
 
I continue to pray for all of us!!!
 
Tonight I will raise a drink in celebration of my results, as well as for my fellow brothers here battling this disease!!
 
LIVESTRONG!!!
