On my drive home from my happy meeting with my uro it hit me the tears just came. Seems kinda silly a grown  man cruising down the freeway crying his eyes out glad I didn't get pulled over most likley some trooper would have gotten a big hug!  I well always check here to see who needs my prayers or anything else I can help with. love jw
