Hi~Birdland, Hi~Shepla,  & Hi~56 Pontiac, 

 

October 12th just around the corner…… I wanted to let you know we continue to keep you close ~ in our thoughts and prayers!

 

A gentle reminder….

To please keep in touch next week ~and~ as soon as your healing/recovery time allows you to do so after the 12th.  Okay J

 

We are sending extra “waves of strength” to each of you at this time.

 

And know that we will definitely be with you on surgery day!!!

 

We will be on the lookout for a new thread specific to you….. This would be great!!!

 

Example: 

Surgery Update ~ (you)

 

In Friendship,

Lee & Buddy

 

"GOD Bless You"

 

It's a little prayer "GOD Bless You"...

but it means so much each day,

It means may angels guard you

and guide you on your way.

Holy Cow!
 
When the names are side by side it really makes an impact. This is going to be one busy get well room! Not to worry. Look at the guys so far. They're all doing pretty darned good. Time heals and what doesn't, there is always vitiman 3 and creative thinking to manage the rest.    :-) Swim

Hi,
Just thought I let you guys know that Curtis had his surgery Tuesday and is doing very well in his recovery...although, like all the other guys he wants to get that catheter out as soon as possible.  Only time he takes pain med is just before bed at night and only takes 1/2 dose.
Yes the waiting is the worse part..I'm so glad it's over now.  He was supposed to have his surgery next Tuesday the 10th, but they moved it up a week and we're glad it's done and he's on the mend.
You are all three in my thoughts and prayers...Keep the chin up....you'll be fine.

Hey, Birdland, Shepla and 56Pontiac.

May you have the best fortunes this week as you journey into the darkness of sleep and awake in the lightness of being cancer free. God speed

Thankyou everyone for your prayers and thoughts. I am ready to get it done. Of course I am anxious and a bit worried, but on the other hand I am excited about the fact that this will be a cure if the PC hasn't gone anywhere else. I plan to stay involved with this forum after the fact. Until this happened to me, I had no idea just how big this prostate cancer problem is for us guys. I also am now aware that a lot of guys think this is the end of their lives (I mean sexual and love lives)  and it just isn't true. I want to be a someone after this is over that can share my story and encourage others. This whole thing has brought me closer to God and my family and friends. It has made me realize just how many times in my life He has never let me down. Gods will is at work here there are no coincidences, it is all part of a personal plan designed before I was born. A coincidence is when God decides to remain anonymous. Excuse me if my belief offends anyone, if it does, think about it for a minute. Like the 10,000 year old man said after lightning struck and killed "Big Dave" the meanest biggest guy around at the time, "There is something up there bigger than Dave." Yes sir there is something bigger than Dave. We all need something bigger than Dave.

Hi 56 Pontiac,

Your thoughts touched us!!! So much of what you said is the way we feel.  How many commercials have you seen about prostate problems... and never gave them a second thought!!!  We too feel that we are to be a messenger for making others aware of this terrible disease ~ prostate cancer.  I guess because I’m a mama bluebird chirp, chirp, and chirp!!!  We were a good pick for the job...  :-)   

 

Your beliefs should not offend anyone because we all have a higher power somewhere in our lives.  It may not be the higher power you worship....or the higher power that I worship... and that's okay!!!  We are here for a reason and we just happen to know what our reason is.... we are here to spread the knowledge and strength to those who are newly diagnosed and are floundering in their attempt to find peace with this disease.  We can help if the door is open for us to share.

 

We felt strongly about sharing “OUR JOURNEY”… which we have!!!! from DRE to our 6th month healing/recovery and it's a good feeling to know that we are helping others.

Knowledge is Power and Power takes away the fear. 

This forum is a wonderful place where true feelings can be shared and understood.

 

Sending special prayers filled with strength for the next stepping-stone on Thursday.  We will be here waiting to hear from you!!

 

In Friendship ~ Lee & Buddy
