Hello to All,
 
Just got back from the doctors office, and I got the big "Goose Egg" on the PSA test. Now I don't have to go back till end of August. I think I'll take Jane out to Ambrosia's to celebrate with flaming Saganaki, Greek dinner, and lots of Greek wine.

Thank you all,

I just want to thank all my good friends for your warmth, support, encouragement, laughs, tears, and words of wisdom without which this year of recovery might have been unbearable. I pray each and every one of you the successful healing experience I have been blessed with. You are truly an amazing and wonderful group... no, I mean family.

God bless you all,

Glen
