My old computer (1998 model) finally crashed and burned about 2-weeks ago. So I had no way of communicating with you. CyberSpace was unreachable. What to do to get back on HealingWell? I thought and thought to no avail. Finally, after several phone calls to very smart relatives, I was still at a loss...they could not come up with an answer. It was like Jeppordy without Alex Trebek.
I needed a fresh idea. A new idea. NEW! I would buy a new computer. An inspiration. An awakening. A lucky guess. So, after using all of my inherited family brain-power....I did it! Bought a new computer that is. You can probably tell I'm using it now.
Seriously, we often tell "newbies" that they are lucky to have found this site. And how true that is. Now imagine losing this site for 2-weeks. No communication with trusted people I consider friends. Sometimes, I don't fully appreciate advantages until they're gone.
So, like an old penny I'm gratefully back.
All Good Thoughts,

Welcome Home Vet!

Good to hear that you're back on line, and with brand new equipment too. I guess there will have to be a new computer for me soon, usually the operating system can only go through 2 upgrades (about 5 years), and then they say you don't have enough memory. Maybe I'll just get an iPhone...

Diagnosed at age 60
PSA went from 2.2 to 3.8 in 14 months
2 of 14 cores positive at 10%
Gleason 6(3+3), negative DRE, neg. boundaries
