Yes FLHW: "A sad day for the music industry and the PCa community." Fogelberg was a great creator of music and a great technician too. I heard he played all of the instruments on his major recordings, which is no easy feat.
As in many. many New Years past, this year I'll be playing "Same Old Lang Syne" on my piano.

D.O.B - 8/9/52

PSA: First ever was 9.8 in late Oct. ‘06, two weeks later, 10.1

DRE: Negative

Biopsy results 11/22/06.  Both lobes involved.  Six out of eight cores positive - from 100 percent to 90, to 60, to 50, two 20s and two zeros.

Gleason 3+3 = 6

Da Vinci Robotic RP surgery, City of Hope, Jan 12, 2007

Post surgery pathology – Organ confined, Gleason still 6, margins clear.  Volume of tumor much less than biopsy suggested.  12 percent overall.

First post-surgery PSA -- Undetectable, 2/20/07

Second post-surgery PSA -- Undetectable, 9/11/07

And may God Bless him! I loved his music. I am a thirty year old on the guitar and play quite well. And this hits me well. Thanks David! for the heads up! He was the
"Leader of the Band."

May God Bless him!

Age 45 (44 when Dx)
Pre-op PSA was 19.8
Surgery on Feb 16, 2007
Post-Op Pathology was poor: Gleason 4+3=7, 4 positive margins, Stage pT3b (Stage III)
HT began in May, '07 with Lupron and Casodex 50mg
IMRT radiation for 38 Treatments ending August 3, '07
My PSA did drop out after surgery to undetectable.  It has not returned and I will continue HT until January '08.
My Life is supported very well by family and friends like you all.

Dan Fogelberg's memory envoking music will be missed by all. The leader of the band was written in honor of Folgelberg's father. His father's memory continues on every time that song is played. How clever :>)

We did lose a great man in the music community. His music told stories. It evoked emotion. These are things that are lacking in most of todays music. I will say a prayer for him today. Can you just imagin the band he is playing with now! What a concert to go to. He did send us all a message about how we should fight this monster. "Run for the roses".
