[I] took my wife, son, her sister her two sons to the airport this morning. We got up at 3:45am and I got them there by 5:45 am. Then I went back to play 1.5 hours of some singles with my buddy Jeff. Then my daughter and I went to church at University Presbyterian. Then we had lunch at her new place, there’s a PCC right below here complex. We signed papers and she’s going to move in next weekend. It’s like she’s going back to the U of W again for school where she had her own place 🙂 It’s not really hit me that this is she’s leaving the next for a bit. She was a bit apprehensive, but I told her we’d be able to get out if needed and she could always come home as her bedroom would have all her stuff 🙂
I walked my dog for a bit and then came home and mowed the front lawn. I need to mow the back next…So, I am beginning to wonder if this blog is the best thing to do about dealing with my PC and my hopeful cure. I have been watching Youtube videos as well as Google searches for such topics. I really would like to get reinforcement again from Dr. Corman but I know he’s super busy and is probably dealing with many others, most likely some worse than me. Which brings me to my other thoughts, I thought I heard him state that my nerves on my right side of the prostate will be removed and that most likely my lymph nodes, not sure if both sides or just the right?
I found out I play my first round of the Washington State Open Tennis Tournament on Thursday at 11:30am, apparently I got a bye first round 🙂 I am still fighting a bad left hip and my right shoulder (never had ANY) shoulder or for that matter Hip problems ever. Then all of the sudden, for the last 2 years, my left him needs replacing and not sure what is going on with my shoulder. I just want to push through it but my serve has lost 25 mph I bet which my serve was my strongest part of my game.
I believe that GOD’S wake up call for me is the entire reason for this PC. It’s a wake up call to really give my life 110% to serving GOD. It’s a MIRACLE that my left hip surgery was cancelled the first time due to no cardiac anesthesiologist. Had there been one available, I would have a new hip, but……….. I would most likely have aggressive PC spread through my entire body. Then, my second attempt in March this year, had my doctor (first time ever) not ordered a PSA, you know the rest. Why would my doctor order it? What sparked his thought process?
My first attempt, I had passed the physical and the hospital had their own Internal Medicine doctor to do my physical and I passed w/o a PSA test. Like I said, I had really never heard of a PSA. Why did he recommend me to go to the Urologist when my first PSA test was only 5.0? What if he said, let’s wait a year?
I actually haven’t talked to Dr. Steve since my diagnosis, but I think I told the team on an email that I wasn’t going to the tennis play offs in Spokane as I thought my surgery was then. However, I could go now, but…. I really don’t feel up for it and we have enough players. If I was at the top of my game with a good hip, I’d be there to help the team.
Well, it’s kind of weird around here on Sunday afternoon without my wife or son around. I TRULY LOVE THEM! I really MISS THEM TOO! One day at a time, one foot in front of the other, one breath at a time… GOD’s my ROCK and SAVIOR in Jesus Christ.
