A Semi-Final Word

As of today the proton treatment is complete.

Nuisance side effects should slowly fade completely.

The speech went reasonably well, though, it would have been better had I not been quite so emotional. Of course I wept, but the audience was patient and seemingly appreciative.

The initial PSA result looks very promising. it dropped from a high of 3.8 to 2.41. We will monitor my PSA very closely, i.e., every three months for the next two years.

From time to time I will provide progress reports so stay tuned if interested in outcome long term.

I wish to thank my family and friends who offered their welcome support throughout my tumultuous journey.

Don you are missed. I gave my talk today and presented my poster. Richie and I play Judy and Stewart tennis for the last time tomorrow night and my last treatment is Friday early morning.

I imagine you guys are in Texas not. Best to you.
