    Default Anniversary

    It has been 11 years today since my PSA that led me toward my journey with
    prostate cancer. On this date, I have in the past annually posted my entire
    history, but there have only been six new members to this newsgroup and
    maybe only one that stuck around. Hence, I will not bore y'all. And,
    updates to last years treatise would include only that;

    I'm still seeing PSA results of less than 0.10.
    I now have ten grandchildren as of April.
    I officially retired in March 2011.

    I'm still having a great time and still fighting the bastard.

    Steve,

    I started the journey 9.5 years ago with you. You had a year or so on
    me and I am eternally grateful for your sharing, caring, and honest
    dealings with me. You were the first person that gave me the truthful
    information on PCa that I was looking for - when no one else would. I
    am talking about the physicians I was dealing with to nurses and on
    down. You inspired me, made me laugh and kept me honest with a
    realistic outlook. I still believe that this group offers better
    medical advice and support than any other place on earth for PCA. . I
    admired you for keeping statistics on everyone and being the GodFather
    of the group. You deserve to be healthy for another 10+ years and I
    wouldnt bet against you and am rooting for you to hit 20+. Keep the
    Journey Going.Thank you Steve and God Bless.

    PS. My X -Ray white spot was arthritis.

    Every once in awhile, I am struck dumb. Your post just did that for me.
    Thank you for your warm thoughts and well wishes. I cannot express how much

    Congratulations Steve, My latest, a couple of weeks ago was 0.1. Just had a
    biopsy of a mass in my chest through the same zipper from when they did the
    bypass 5 yrs. ago. All was benign and they removed the thymus gland. We only
    need that gland as kids and adolescents to grow, at my age the only thing
    that is growing is the belly.

    You don't have to mention your score Fen. It's obvious that you're a
    winner.

    Best of luck for the future.

    Congratulations Steve. I think you've made a big difference in many
    people's lives.

    I hope you live to see every one of those grandchildren go to college,
    graduate, marry, and start families of their own.

    Congratulation Steve on your remission and retirement. I too began my
    retirement just a couple of months ago and have been enjoying it very
    much.
