Happy 2011 to each brother and sister here. 2010 was a long, painful, rough year for me, and I hope I am all behind that. Looking forward to a year where no further surgeries are anticipated or expected. Hoping my own PSA is being held in check. Hoping to well enough to be employable one day again. But one step at the time.
May those that leak- dry up
May those that are limp - harden up
May those with PSA tests looming - may they all be zeros forever
And thanks for all the wonderful support here, and to Peter, always my hero for having this great place to be. I will remember you when I win the Mega or the Powerball. Will make sure HW is well endowed.
