turn  Well Christmas came a little early today, my three year PSA test came back as undetectable. I guess my ZERO CLUB membership for 2011 can be renewed! My Urologist leaves Friday for a little three month tour of Iraq, so at least we know our service men and women are getting the VERY best of care. It's a little early, but Best wishes to all of you for a Happy and HEALTHY 2011.
