My Dear Hub... We got Good News!

On April 9th, the day before my Dear Hubs 47th Birthday, we got some very disturbing news. After months of tests and hearing, "Oh, I'm sure it's nothing, but lets check" and "Oh, I am sure it's just an infection, but just to be sure, let's do a biopsy" ...We got the word. "Yes, it's Cancer"..."Yes, it's very aggressive"..."No, we can't wait until Fall to do your surgery".... We were, to say the least, very shocked & scared.

Hubs went in for surgery on May 12th and had his prostate removed along with 2 lymph nodes. Since he had had an appendectomy at the age of 18, he was not a candidate for the laser surgery, so he had to do the regular surgery.

He has been a model patient & is healing nicely. Thanks so very much to everyone who has written the wonderful emails & sent their good wishes, thoughts & prayers. They were & are ALL Apreciated!

So....Drum Roll Please....

We got his Pathology Report back this week & though the prosate was totally involved & very close to the margins, the surgery was successful! The lymph nodes were clear & he will not have to have chemo or radiation. We are so very Happy & Thankful!

Our 29th Anniversary is coming up on June 7th. We are looking forward to a least another 29 more to come! :)
