Well, just before going into my procedure, my lovely wife took a picture of me playing beautiful, sweet music, to all patients in the lobby (LOL).......I really can't play the piano but I did stay at a Holiday Inn once before (lol). And, of course, my friend, Gail, leaves my "Patient Belonging Bag" in my room titled "George Jetson" as she knows I love the Jetson' cartoon. This place is full of love and laughter. I want to thank Dr. B, Carolyn, Susan, Amy, Nelson (who I think I gave $100 to not share what I was saying while sleeping - lol), David, Dr. Banks, Dr. McCord, and everyone involved in my procedure.
Procedure went well, seeds were implanted into my prostate, emitted radiation, crushed the cancer cells and then removed. Process was about 2 hours total, but I didn't remember much thanks to some real good meds. I didn't wake up in pain and I hope I was talking in my sleep. But, I'm sure my girls at Dr. McCords office will tell me if I did and what I was saying.
The procedure leaves you very sore, extremely tired and somewhat sick (from the pain meds) but nothing some good sleep, great food, and tv couldn't take care of.
I'm feeling much better today as I was very sore and tired. Staying at home today, but do have a couple conference calls then I'm done for the day. I want to thank my long time friend and Halftime Sports staffer, Kea, for bringing the awesome Reuben sandwich to the house. Best Reuben I have ever had (actually first Reuben I ever had, but won't be the last). And, Claire for the unreal soup (so much flavor and awesomeness)....I may be sick but I still love food.
So, excited to take Elisa out on a date (movie, dinner and good company) on Saturday night. May have to sit near a restroom, but anything to get my lovely bride out of the house and just enjoy each others company. Watch out Alpharetta/Milton, here we come!
Thank you all so much for the prayers and awesome text messages. You are the Best!!!
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.
