The last line of my signature line says it all.
14 months since my RP surgery, and the 12 month anniversary of my post surgical blood tests and I remain in the zero club with a
<.05 undetectable for the 3rd straight time.
I arranged to meet a new friend in person today at the hospital after meeting here on HW.
Hank and I share a disease, a hospital, and now hopefully a lifetime a good health!!
I'm 50 years old and today was my very first internet date.
Hank was a total gentlemen and even bought breakfast.
A free meal and a zero PSA. Does it get any better than this?
Happy new year to each and every one of you and KEEP THE FAITH.
Hank- thanks for breakfast and I hope you're a zero today too.
All the best,
