Hi DDA!!!

Well as I expected, the results were not good. We saw the Dr today and he said looking at the results he is requesting a CT scan of the abdomen and Bone scan. That means waiting another three weeks.

They did a biopsy of the top, middle and bottom of the right side of the Prostate. The middle was clean but the top and bottom had a result of 7 out of 1 being good to 10 for bad. Since this is VA, we are dealing with, it could mean possibly a longer wait to get scheduled for the tests. Most likely, we caught it in time and only taking out the Prostate will be necessary, but in two years the PSA going from 2.4 to 50 is a concern.

Of course the side affects are also a concern. Friends of Hal's have already had their Prostrates removed with no side affects except one guy has been having heat flashes!! But after over 43 years of marriage, the side affects don't concern me any more, just let him be cancer free.

I will keep you posted. Unless Hal posts something on Facebook, I am not posting there.

Love you Guys!!

We'll keep praying Terry. I hope they can get him in for the additional tests quickly. Hugs to you all.

Terry, I'm so sorry to hear this. I can relate to what you are going through because my dad went through the same thing. I'm happy to report that his surgery was a success. I'm praying that if Hal has surgery, his will be successful too.

Hi, everyone! It's been a long time since I was here. Can I still come in and play?

Deb - I hope everyone at your house is feeling 100%, now!

Debbie - An impromptu trip sounds great!

Tammi - I can't believe how fast the kids have all grown up! Congrats on the early retirement! I think your plan is perfect!

Terry - Prayers for you and Hal. My dad had his prostate removed 15 years ago. The surgery has come a long way since then! I hope that all goes well!

Beth - Sorry you've been in a fog. I think this cold weather does that to a lot of people. I know it's hard to think about family trips without Matthew, but it comes to that for all of us sooner or later. He'll understand, I'm sure.

I've been keeping myself busy with helping out at Katie's drama department. I wasn't going to do any more costumes, but the student director for the winter play, "Heaven Can Wait", really got himself into a bind, so I jumped in to help. It's been fun! Katie is part of the cast, and has really had a great time with it!

Jacob is currently working on finishing up 9 merit badges so that he can start work on his Eagle project this summer. He turns 14 in November, and his goal is to have his Eagle by then. Should be a busy summer for us!

The twins are keeping themselves busy in many ways. Science fair just ended and both girls did well. No one advanced to the next level (hooray), but they had fun anyway. Now, they are working on Battle of the Books. A competition between schools in our district. They have been assigned different books to read per grade. At the end of the year, there will be a schoolwide "Jeopardy" style contest between teams, and the winners will go on to compete with other schools in the district. Mary is taking it a bit more seriously than Leslie, but both are spending a lot of time, this winter, reading.

Timmy just plugs along as my little buddy! He's growing so fast! He is really the light of my life! Love that kid! He talks like a grown up, and it's terribly cute to hear it coming out of a 4 year old mouth! He's so excited for our Disneyland trip in June! He's almost 41 inches tall, so he'll finally be able to ride some of the big rides! He can't wait!

I promise I'll try to check in here, more! Life just seems to get busier and busier instead of slowing down!

Everyone here seems to be feeling better.

We were on the light end of the snowfall around here. Some places are still digging out. I guess we were lucky. No power loss though the internet required a comcast call. I hate call because they spend the entire call trying to upsell.

Chris and I spent the day helping my brother tap the maple orchard. It was cold and so slippery with the new snow. I can't tell you how many times we slipped and fell. Not good for my hip which I started PT on last week. I fell on my butt at one point and started sliding down the hill, a branch caught my snowpants and ripped the butt right out of them

Good morning, DDA!

I am glad to hear that most of you are doing better and/or fine.

I have been worried about Bernadette since I think she probably got hit pretty hard with the storm. Kathrin and my brother in Boston got close to 30 inches.

Morning, all! Another cold day here, but we have been promised that the weekend storm will be gone today! Crossing my fingers. I know we don't have as much snow as you in the north east, but we just got 2 inches on top of the 24 inches we already had. I'm beginning to feel like an Eskimo!

No real plans here. I've got some books that came in at the library, so Timmy and I may bundle up and go pick them up. Other than that, it's just laundry and snuggle time for me.

Good morning, DDA!

Good to see everyone this sunny cold day.

Glynis - Busy as always, but I'm glad it'a all going so well. Congrats to Jacob for being so close to working he Eagle already. That's amazing.

Deb - Glad you didn't get hit too badly. Hope tapping didn't do too much damage to your hip.

Elin - Hope your brother and Kathrin haven't suffered too much from the snow. I've been wondering about Bernadette too.


We're all good here. I had a nasty diverticulitis attack Friday and Saturday so I'm still working my way back from that. Still very sore today and a little slow, though now as bad as yesterday when the 95 year old lady lapped me twice in the grocery store I was moving so slow. So far my kiddos are playing very well today (knock on wood) so hopefully that continues and I don't have to overdo it too much today.
