I had another hormone implant today. That's not really news. Dr. Grimes (that's me) may have had the number of those treatments wrong. I asked the nurse if this was the last one & she said March of 2013 is what the notes said, & showed it to me. Some how I thought it was two years after my last radiation treatments. Wheew! Oh well, one day at a time.

Look on the bright side Frank. In the old days they would just remove the cojones and we definitely wouldn't want a neutered Grimes walking around.
Stay strong Paco! We love you!

Thanks Jesse! I'll be OK, reading it on the computer screen whacked me. When the nurse said it, it surprised me, & she turned the screen & showed it to me. I can refuse treatments, it just wouldn't be smart. Is that Spanish for those things? I would have started with a Ka. Can't wait! I have four more Dr. appointments this month relative to cancer & I expect to be on course. It's Great to have friends!

More good news! I wasn't going to post anything, but after talking to Randy, & then confirmed from Jesse & Jason, I decided to post.  My PSA is not detectable! That's huge! In this process, I meet with numerous Doctors & nurses. I met with the radiologist Friday 06/22/12 & also learned my last hormone implant will be August 29th 2012. Huge!  That will be two years after my last radiation treatment. I meet with the GU Dr. July 6th, but I don't think it will be news worthy.

I'm doing well with my cancer battle! A friend called last week, Paul, asking how I was doing. I've been told often I look good. Of course I already thought that.  ;) They probable mean healthy. I've lost a huge amount of muscle mass. I can't curl 60 lbs. The medication I've been taking for over 2 1/2 years, gets the credit. My spirit could not be better! I'm so grateful for the support, it's huge!!! Thanks!!! I don't know if I can open the can of cancer whoop ass yet, but I'm doing good. I've got to work on getting my energy back.

"I've got to work on getting my energy back."
This coming from the man that puts more work into our courses than all of us AND the park districts combined!
Rock on Sodfather!

Well, I haven't heard this word apply to me, remission! I met with the radiologist yesterday, Jan. 11, & she uttered that word. The last two psa reading were 0.01 down from 13.82. It is awesome news!!! It can pop up again, but it's coming up to 3 years & everything is going in the right direction. Another step in this process is to have the hormone medication leave my system. I did not get a definite answer to that question, but in general a few months.
Thanks for the support, it's huge!!!
