Dear Leandra & Loved One,
Sending a Special “Warm Welcome” to You
We are so happy you’re letting us walk with you!!!!
You have joined a group of wonderful individuals who are so willing to share their journey with you… which in turn ~ will make your journey much smoother. You will be getting lots of input from all of us with your questions…. Keep sharing with us
You’ve probably already hit the OVERLOAD phase and this is normal.
Take a deep breath… ~ and continue on…. Once you’ve made the decision as to the treatment you want…. things smooth out! But ~ you have to step on this stone to get there….. I call it the BIG stepping-stone in your journey with prostate cancer. It is one of many along this path and our goal is to reach the stone of being free of prostate cancer. And we are here to help you on ~ to each and every stone. Our helping hands will always be there for you!
Buddy and I invite you to read “Our Journey”… and our other threads…listed below…
I know it will help you……
We learned so much from Dr. Walsh’s book…. It truly educated us and took the fear away.
Trust me when I say we become calm…. only after we realize that there are so many out there who have traveled this path…. and they have traveled it well.
Positive attitude and make sure honey is exercising…….. VERY IMPORTANT… have you checked out the KEGEL Thread..??? Start now and climbing stairs…too!
Excerpt from “Our Journey”…
KNOWLEDGE IS POWER... and POWER conquers FEAR!!!!!
We decided to share “Our Journey” in hopes of helping at least 1 person! If it helps more…. If it helps you!!!! That will truly be a blessing…
At no time are we writing to tell you what you must do, or what you should do….
Your decision is Your Decision!!
Just giving you a view of what decisions we made, what the process was for us, and the outcome as of this date.
Keeping you close in thoughts and prayers…
In New 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.
