Todd - Thank you so much for letting us into your house as kind of cybernetic houseguests, so to speak, and for giving us a quick look at things happening at your end!
I counted a bunch of things going on, as you describe in your post, so that, despite immediate boring aspects to it, you're still getting stuff done, and stuff that's good to do!
Can't help but notice the references to various foods in your post, salmon, halibut, oyster, clams, and maybe even Texas hog. Yes! I've always believed that when a person's thoughts are on good foods, that's definitely a positive sign, that on the whole things are going well for that person.
Which is reinforced by the upcoming joys of the holiday season, with family coming to town, and the festive house a constant reminder of the pleasures brought by this time of year!
Don't worry about the Benadryl. My older son, the computer guy, has been taking it for years for his allergies. and he still writes a mean computer program!
Good on you for writing for Prostatecancer.net and Healthline. You are in a great position to make very real and important contributions to those sites, and it's for certain that your words there are having a very helpful impact on all who read them!
I have every confidence that the retirement thing is going to work out for you. This is because, as I have always believed, there are some people in life for whom things just seem to work out, and I am convinced that you are one of them. I remember how ominous and concerning your PCa prognosis was just a few years ago, how bleak things looked for you, but then things worked out, and, granted the fight still goes on, but here you are, years later, getting ready for a great holiday season with family, with good food just waiting for you to eat it, and much to celebrate!
You continue to be a rock star inspiration to us, Todd, and we all look forward to even more of that from you for a long time to come!
Best wishes to you and family for the holidays : have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Oh, and I hope the TV cable comes back as soon as possible!
