day by day, feeling more normal

It's been 5 months since my last shot of Lupron and I can start to feel my body getting back to 'normal' or should I say pre-hormrone treatment (my wife would argue I was ever normal :))

Next visit to the oncologist is June 14 for the all important PSA check. I'm feeling good about it.

On a side note, if you're like me, your heart just aches for the folks in Joplin, MO and the other communities devastated by the devastating tornadoes. I need to find a way to best help my fellow man/woman/child, even though I don't know them....some day I may need help too.
Think about what you can do

Make every day great!

Tubby Smith has prostate cancer

Tubby Smith, coach of the Minnesota Golden Gophers

59 years old....this follows Steve Lavin, 46, coach of St. Johns University who at this time is contemplating his treatment.

Waaaaay too many people but it's great that it's not hidden in a closet. Digger Phelps, former BB coach of Notre Dame and now with ESPN has made a strong effort to raise awareness. So has one of his colleagues Erin Andrews. They joined forces in the 'On The Line' campaign, check it out...

Cabo was great

awesome weather, great resort (Capella Pedregal) and good friends

I played golf at Cabo Del Sol, one of the top courses in the world...a Jack Nicklaus design.
played like shit...too many blow up holes which is easy to do if you try to play this course after only playing 27 total holes.

I also had an opportunity to raise awareness about PC while on the trip...the tats are a great conversation starter.

no go forth and live life to it's fullest.

energy is picking up

It's been 4 months since my last Lupron shot and it's weaning out of my system. That means more energy, less hot flashes and getting back to 'normal'. Feeling good.

I'm typing this from 34K' in the air...with my bride on our way to Cabo. Inner Circle trip and it should be awesome. fun in the sun.

Keep talking to your friends, fathers, brothers, coworkers about Prostate Cancer, we need to keep raising awareness and maybe we'll be able to get the NFL to wear light blue like they do pink.

now go out and Make it a Great Day!
