Hi all! yeah yeah
As many of our friends on this forum know we've been vacationing in northern Ontario since early July, camping with our daughter, son-in-law and our two grandkids Joshua 7 and Kaylee 4 1/2, while awaiting the arrival of the third little one who "was" due Aug 25th.
Our daughter virtually went from campground to hospital the evening of August 7th at 8PM and welcomed the arrival of her third child at 1:30 AM with Daddy and weepy grandma present. . . . .WHOO HOOO what a thrill!!  The miracle of life . . makes you realize the stones along life's way are all worth it when a moment like this is experienced.
Logan Robert weighed in at 8lbs 11 oz and is 19.75 inches long.  He has a full head of fluffy inch long hair and is a hefty weight being 3 weeks early.  Considering #1 baby was 11 lbs, we are thankful this one came early.
We are all thrilled and will be staying here until early September.  Days are spent helping out at the house and nights in our RV with both or whichever grandchild chooses to spend the night.
Hope all are well in the forum.  Now that we have more regular internet access, we'll be around a bit more regular, but not totally until September.

Thanks to all for your kind comments.  How true . . .very little else compares with grandkids . . . . having all three of ours 2000 miles away from us causes this grandma many hours of loneliness, but our rather long visits when we do visit more than compensate.  Mom and the 3 little ones are due to fly out west to visit immediately after Christmas for 2 weeks, so at least we have that to look forward to when our visit this time is done. . . .Then for the long drive home . . . . .

Thanks again!!

;o) Linda & Bob

Linda, that is just wonderful. At this very moment my 10 month old grandson (and namesake) is in the living room being cute. We should be grandparents first.

August of 2006, PSA up to 4.2 from 2.7 one year ago. 
October free and total PSA 12% free and 5.0 total.
A month, or so later, 4.7.
Late in the year decide on Image Guided IMRT.
Begin 43 treatments on January 23, 2007 and finish on March 23.
Four month post treatment PSA is 1.9.  (This is a very good result.)
No side, or after effects.  None.
I have aged a year and am now 63.  How did that happen?

How wonderful for all of you - especially that precious baby to be born into a family that loves him so!

Bill - you are so right about being grandparents that's the truth!
