Hi ~ AEG,
Re-read Tony’s posting…*TC-LasVegas…
This forum is a sounding board for all of us. We all have our own way of dealing with the news that we (husbands & spouse/partners) have prostate cancer.
Your way ~ is your way. And if it helps you to question “think outside the box” then feel free to do so!
Your husband was 43 at diagnosis and you have to do.... what you have to do... to survive this journey.
Keep asking your questions… Keep reaching out!!!
You’ve allowed me to grab “Gordy” and give him a big ole hug… so this thread was worth more than you will ever know ~ to us.
We all have the right to read or not to read. The “Admin” has given us an option…. There is a special button “ignore posts from ?? ” if someone doesn’t want to read any postings from a specific member. They have a choice…. Just click on the “thumbs down” and poof…. No more postings will be seen from that member on their computer..
Also ~ a forum rule (partial quote) #3:
Respect other members of the community and don’t belittle, make fun off, or insult another member.
Sometimes we may not be in the right frame to respond and it takes a huge heart to realize this and retract (apologize) for ones own words… This is where that person earns respect!!! And sometimes it earns “big hugs” too!!!
So ~ dear AEG ~ keep posting!!!! We are here for you. Since your 1st thread Please Help there was never any update. Our thoughts are with you as you continue to move forward.
This path is best traveled with friends…. Sharing your journey allows us to know where you are on your path. Hope to hear from you with a little glimpse into your journey. Until then ~ as Wittler would say…. STAY STRONG…
Take care ~ and keep coming back!!! In Friendship ~ Lee & Buddy
