I go in to the City of Hope early tomorrow morning to have the bilateral nerve sparing laparoscopic radical prostatectomy with the Davinci robot(the entire name!). Dr Kawachi will be at the controls for the important parts. I am putting my full trust and confidence in God first and then the facility and their reputation. I am at peace and confident that the outcome will be as good as it could be, based on my condition. Your thoughts and prayers of support are very much appreciated.
