Hi Lee & Buddy
I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season.
A while back I was reading thru some of the helpful hints on PC and I remember reading one where you described PSA in the form of pennies. I cannot find that post as I wanted to re-visit it and was wondering if you could direct me. Also if I remember right going by the way you described it Rick's PSA is now 0.12, would that be 12 pennies?
Also I want to Thank you and all of the members who devote so much of your time helping us learn more about prostate cancer. I don't know where I would be without sites like healingwell. Rick has a son age 42, they had not spoke in 15 years and I picked up the phone one day and called his son to warn him about being checked for PSA & prostate cancer. His son wanted all of the details of his father's condition and showed genuione(sp) concern. We have had dinner with him twice and he has called me nearly every day to check on his dad. He went to the Doc and his PSA came back at 1.6 normal. Its amazing that prostate cancer can also re-unite a family. I have wanted Rick & his son to have a relationship for years and now it seem to finally be happening.
Thank you
Diana

Hi Lee

Thank you so much for leading me to that post, I had tried to re-visit it but could not find it before. Thanks again, Also thank you for your kind words of encouragement & warm hugs. Like I said before I don't know how I would be able to deal with this prostate cancer without the help of the people on this board. Everyone is so kind & giving of themselves I hope they know they are all truly appreciated.

Best Wishes

Diana
