PSA still in check

I had blood work done on Monday and a visit with my Oncologist yesterday. While the PSA went up, it's still at a low enough level where we can postpone going back on meds. next check up is in 3 months and if the PSA climbs above 1.5, I'll most likely go on meds again. but until then, I'm a happy, health guy!

Mo success

A big THANKS to everyone who supported my Movember efforts. this was the biggest year yet! I'm so very proud to be able to 'pay it forward' and help raise awareness. Together we can find a cure!

Movember well under way

It's that time of year when men grow a Mo to help raise awareness around men's health. This year I'm leading the Splunk Mo team and it's been great. I decided to go with a 'smile style', check it out....

Just left my Oncologist's office, dancing down the hallway. my PSA is at 0.46.....still low. It's awesome news and I can hear my mom saying "yes!, that's great news" just like she always did when I told her about my test results. Great day!

15 President's Club a 15th surgery

Yup, when my surgeon did my twiste bowel surgery in Nov, 2015, she said "do you know you have a hernia?" Well, it's time to get it fixed. BUT, THERE'S a twist. Due to all my abdominal surgeries, my stomach muscles are separated at 10cm. Surgery scheduled for September 19th.

Cancer sucks

I went to visit my dad last week to help him adjust life without mom. While in Wisconsin I visited my brother who is battling aggressive melanoma. He's struggling with a lot of pain, he walks with a cane, can't work and the doctors are trying to find the right combination of drugs. I also learned that my dad's sister is battling breast cancer and I just received a call from my cousin, Aunt Gerry passed away either last night or early this morning. Cancer sucks, enough already
