Although, this has been a very challenging health week for me, I just received some awesome news.
First, let me tell you that I had a PSA test last Wednesday (PSA is Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is a substance produced by the prostate gland.
Most men have PSA levels under four and this has traditionally been used as the cutoff for concern about the risk of prostate cancer. Men with prostate cancer often have PSA levels higher than four (mine was 39.52). Those with a PSA between four and 10 have a 25% chance of having prostate cancer and if the PSA is higher than 10, the risk increases and is greater than 50%. Well, I had friggin cancer!
So, I received an email from my Doctor Banks office Patient Portal in regards to my PSA results. I click on the email and it says, "login and password." Are you kidding me, my mind is racing so fast, I can't remember my own name and now you want me to remember a darn login, and password. So, I make two attempts, of course, using the wrong login and password, and now I'm going crazy with anxiety. I click the "forgot your login" link, and have a text sent to me, then I input the numbers from the text (just to verify I am who I say I am), then the login is sent to my email (are you keeping up with all this craziness?), and finally....I get the login (which prompts me to remember my password), and it opens my file. Really, a simple phone call would have made this much easier :)
My PSA results are 0.10 (which means that the Cancer is almost ALL GONE). My heart is overwhelmed with joy as tears of happiness are streaming down my eyes. My mind is spinning with all of the "Get well" cards, text messages and love that has been showered down on me, Elisa and our family.
Words cannot express how grateful we are, to you (my friend), for the blessings and prayers thrown our way.
The radiation in my body will continue to provide me with fatigue and crazy side effects, but it will also crush the remaining 0.10 cancer in my body. Although, I didn't win the lottery last night, I did win the Lottery and gift of life, and I'm so thankful and excited.
Love you for reading my blog.

Was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer on July 18, 2018 which may have crushed someone's soul and spirit. However, it did the opposite, as I already knew GOD had claimed my victory over this disease and was using me as an instrument to others who suffer from this deadly disease.
