Just wanted to let you know that DWs first PSA result came back yesterday as 0.06 3 mos after the HIFU treatment. Hope it goes down further in the next 3 mos. He is doing fine in every aspect but has to keep taking his testosteron cream (a very low dose) to keep up his energy otherwise he can't make it through the day. He is taking several supplements but these alone don't give him enough energy to function well at work.
What a year this has been, hope the next one will be better.
Wishing all you nice and helpfull people a wonderfull Holiday and a great and better New Year.

Hi DWT & SL,


*&^%$#@    WOO HOO!!  (*&^%$#  what a great start on the road to recovery~~~lookin’ good!!!


Thank you so much for the update…  Buddy & I were taking our daily walk yesterday and we talked about you both.  You answered our questions and we are thankful you stayed with us. 

Yes ~ 2006 has been an eye opener, a heart opener, and a day-to-day opener…. For sure!!! yeah  


It’s been a tough road physically and mentally for all of us and to see that we all stick/stuck together makes it a smoother road to travel.


We’ve all changed~ and we all have more “friends” because of it!  This is truly a nice “positive”.


We wish you both continued healing/recovery…..  It takes time and time is a healer.  Listening to our bodies is the most important thing we can do right now.  It’s been a year we will never forget…. And it’s a year that will stay with us forever…. And that’s a good thing!  Making us realize that each and every~day we’ve traveled the past year is just as important as “tomorrow”….


Take care and we continue to keep you close in thoughts and prayers.

In Friendship ~ Lee & Buddy

Has anyone heard from SL lately? Her post is over a year old. Would love to hear from them both. Friends are hard to come by and sometimes harder to keep in touch with.
