Thanks Tony, Allen, i may be using the wrong term. I would say, the way it was described to me, that he decided to do nothing for the moment other than monitor the situation. Sort of "on AS, but not really in a formal program, with a predetermined point of action". I disagreed with this, but his Dr agreed (same Dr that diagnosed me, pretty well known, and so i am surprised he was so relaxed about
it, i figured maybe i was missing something. He is Chief of Urology at a major long island Hospital.) Well known for successfully "treating" Don Imus ,who i beleive remains on AS.
I am going to pass on all of your comments to my buddy. I hope he eventually feels ready to join us here, i think it would help him alot. But its too early to push that.
