I know you are so busy with your challenges right now.
I also know that we here are holding you both in the brightest and warmest love.
Don't hesitate to let us hear from you.  Take a moment with some friends.
    Stop by for a cool beverage and some toast....
       Swim will make coffee and Ms. Blue will sing a song.
           I'm still trying to get Bill to give us a ride on his jet.
               Perhaps we get Mika to "pull him over" ..... scool  .... and we all get onboard.
                   I'll bring some apples and honey.
                       Tony and Selmer will find Bill's galley and cook!

"May God's Love be with you, always - in the Son!"

Cedar says, "Take a moment with some friends."  Your post was beautifully said, Cedar.  I am moved.

I've met Les and Mika and think so well of them.  What a lousy way to meet fine people, but we still get to meet even if only online.  Friends.


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?

Hey, how'd Cedar know I like good conversation and good coffee? :>)
