George and I were one week apart for surgery back in February.  We shared almost everything.  PSA was close, Pre-stage ws close, Gleason was same.  I left him an Email today and am puting up this thread in hopes we can re-great him. 
My heart goes out to him and those who have had depression during their fight with PCa.  I don't have depression and can only enforce to all that do, it's hard to avoid, but I do feel well and it's because I don't let this disease take my quality time away from me.  Vet's positive thoughts thread is so true and leaves a lot to be desired.

Hey ~ George,


This place is really booming and you are truly missed.  With so many Newbies finding us!!!! the threads are really moving fast.  Please ~ as time permits … we would really like to hear from you. 


Don’t let the dark clouds surround you because they are extremely hard to get through if they gang up.  So ~ I’m sending a *special *rainbow* and it is filled with * sunshine* to burn the clouds away.


*This is your very own Rainbow and it’s sprinkled with Sunshine*







I just re-read your journey and I am so sad to say I missed your post in March.  You have traveled a harsh path during your journey ~ and in the end once the clouds move away ~ you will find that you can and will be stronger from it.  You have strength and you just have to tap into it.  And with Tony and all of us in your corner… You can’t lose!!!! 


So ~ reach out again friend.  We are here!!! And we can make you stronger just by being here for you.  Pull from all of our strengths to add to yours and you will find the path becomes smoother.  

Keeping you extra close to our hearts... while you work your way back to all of us.


In Friendship ~ Lee & Buddy

I exchanged E-mails with George and he is doing OK on the cancer but the HT and other things seem to have allowed depression to settle in. I told him about you wonderful posters reaching out to him, and suspect we might see him back soon. He and Kathy are back together and hopefully working things out. His T levels are very low, and Biker90, Jim, you might be of help for George with your experiences.
