Yes, this was,one great post, even greater when you post your signature update, PSA down to 1.04 last month ,and I claim for you ahead of time, down to undetectable next month!. Zytiga is a powerful drug, and will hopefully be your friend, and long lasting.
We faced that same harsh "maybe 50% chance after 4 to 5 years" after being Dx. (I already broke thru that glass ceiling, as I am determined not to be a statistic!)We both have similar DX facts, Stage IV with high PSA upon Dx ,and with some bone mets. you are 59,yrs old, I am 61, your Gl was 8 ,mine was 7. Your "downturn and ride" on Lupron has been better than mine was, which should mean you'll do well on ZYTIGA.
As far as milestones, I think your post was right on, and a great reminder to us all, as others have stated. Cherish everyday, every moment, see the beauty of the simplest things like sunrise, sunsets, and the natural world around us. Most especially cherish all those close to us, and enjoy every moment we can with them, because it's now that their memories of us will be everlasting.
Keep the Faith,
