Hi,

Just got a call from Dr. Very positive post operative pathology report. The highlights: Gleason score changed from 6 to a 7. Volume of cancer within the prostate 7%. No positive margins, lymph nodes, nerve bundles all negative.

The 2nd best thing is I had my cath removed earlier and I already have some control.

A great day that leaves me feeling so lucky...so blessed.

Life is good.

Frank
