Well it has finally arrived, exactly one week from today I go to Detroit for my surgery. Thanks to you guys I am much better prepared that I ever would have been on my own.

And on that note, here is a very appropriate THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:

HANDLE EVERY STRESSFUL SITUATION LIKE A DOG WOULD

IF YOU CAN'T EAT IT OR PLAY WITH IT

JUST PEE ALL OVER IT AND WALK AWAY

Yep. Just save it up and make it a worthwhile stressor that you take care of.

My planes leaves Orlando the morning of the 16th. I plan to get set up in the apartment, buy a few groceries and get a good nights rest. I am scheduled for the first surgery of the day on your birthday, the 17th.

Will you have anyone up there to assist you? I had a hard time for the first few days getting up out of bed from a laying down position. Was glad my wife was here to help. The later it got in the day was more difficult since I would be more tired. A few times in the middle of the night I would wake up and walk around inside of the house. Always needed a little push from my wife to help get me up.

Good luck to you Sonny, may God bless you on your journey.
Your "stats" are similar, with exceptions, to mine: age 60, PSA 22, Gleason total 7, 12 pin biopsy all postive and all scans negative. It's been 6 months since my radical prostatectomy. Last followup PSA 0.008. Go into it with a positive attitude as it appears you are. Loved your thought for the day. Keep us posted on your progress after surgery.
