My Dear, Dear Bluebird. To you new guys who are frightened. You are not alone. You are with those who have gone before you and been fearful and thought themselves brave. I share your disappointment. I have learned that courage is selective. I expect that you will do well.

Wow, almost two years behind. I had a typical radiation bounce that
scared me, but it seems to be ok. PSA is about 1.0 which is ok for
a rad guy at this stage of the game.
Got my FAA medical certificate back four months after starting my
treatment. It's still a First Class, just jumping through a few hoops.
