I edited this entry from a year ago. Today, 02/16/08 marks my one year since the surgery at the City of Hope. I find this site an interesting archive of things I felt and fears I had a year ago. But I am still just as positive and hopeful as I was going into this whole dang experience. I thank God for That! Thank you and God Bless you all for this wonderful support. I read all these entries again for the first time since. The tears in my eyes are for joy. You all gave them to me tonight... (PS. My PSA was 19.8 on dx but 13.9 at surgery. Not sure why the drop but I had hopes it was good news) From one year ago:
Note: These dates are over a year old but apparently the Healingwell server does not post them right when they're this old?
From February, 2007...
Well it's time. I was treated with great dignity yesterday at City of Hope. I had six pre-op tests and meetings. I never waited more than five minutes for any of them. It was nice being greeted at the main entrance and led each step of the way through the process. Tomorrow morning is the day and I am not nervous. Just thankful that I met all of you.
