Dear Tony (and Ruth too!)
Tony you are nothing short of amazing! I was so happy to see your upbeat and uplifting message this morning! Your postings should stay at the top of this message board forever as a reminder of what a real positive thinker you are despite the PC challenges you face ahead of you. You truly are an inspiration to any PC patient. I love upbeat positive people--they usually succeed and conquer the steepest mountains in life.
When I heard that you and your beloved wife were going to Bryce Canon it brought back fond memories of my solo coast to coast car trip when I was in my 20's. I visited Bryce Canon and many of the other glorious natural wonders of our American west. Bryce Canon is such an awesome sigght. Enjoy this special trip with Ruth.
I am so glad to hear that you soon have an appointment with Dr. V at the Nevada Cancer Institute. I hope that you get promising news as you move forward with continued consultations with top PC medical specialists leading to your next stage of treatment. I hope that some form of radiation is possible with hormone treatment so that you can possibly avoid chemotherpy at this juncture. With so many supporters in your corner here, you are bound to be a winner! My thoughts and prayers go out to you and Ruth.
All the best as you move ahead
P.S. If I ever have a down day, I will think back to your postings here and just tell myself to get over it quickly! Move ahead and conquer new horizons!
