  Merry Christmas to you also Doc. I'll continue to keep you in my prayers brother . We all gathered at Church this morning and sang Happy Birthday to Jesus and had a Big cake we all shared together. No gift can ever match what He has given us and it's free for the asking.If anyone here hasn't ever excepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior please do so before it is eternally too late. He just wants you as you are so come freely and ask Him to forgive you of your sins and believe He is God's only begotten Son and He died for our sins and was raised on the 3rd day. Happy Birthday Jesus and Thank You for first Loving Us!

Christmas is over, New Years got rung in, stockings are down, pounds were gained, tree undecorated and put up till next year

And life goes on...

Saw the Oncology Radiologist today... back to Urology doc on 14th to have 3 24Kt gold seeds put in to help target the radiation; which should start about a week later...waiting on a call for that appt as they want to let things "settle down" after the gold inserts! :o

I guess I'm just too chicken to consider surgery living alone and the post op recovery living here alone with nobody around...

They "say" 10 years or even 15 and at 70, that'll be enough... :o :thumbsup: :coffee:

Thanks, gents, one and all....

The process of pre-medication starts tomorrow with dietary limitations due to meds, then the "clean out" process Sunday, the implanting of gold pellets on Monday bright and early and then radiation come the following Tuesday, the 22nd...then just hurry up some more and wait to see if it all worked...

Indeed, it may not be the BEST plan ever devised, but somewhere TRUST has to surface and this is something I can embrace being I live alone here in NE TN...so it's what option seemed best for the current resources at hand!

I appreciate all the prayers... God's Will be Done!

Doc,
  You may be alone in Tenn. But we here are All by your side and praying all go's well as you begin that procedure . As you go through just imagine if you will we are in the waiting room waiting and praying for Our Brother in Christ Jesus.
  Where two or three are gathered in His name (such as here) He will be as well so imagine Jesus is also with us on this.
 Cast all your worries on Him He will take it to our Father and have Faith His will be done brother!
  God Bless and be by your side my friend...<')))><

Thanks, Keith....

The "alone" part wasn't so much a lament, as an explanation... a few have shared their experiences and recommended a different path, as it were.  Perhaps I took the coward's way out, avoid full surgical removal, but I didn't want to try to navigate the recovery without assistance--ie physical help in the here and now...

I appreciate your sentiments and the reality that, indeed,I'm surely not ALONE and I'm trying very hard to lay this down and accept whatever is to be. 

Sure, I'm hoping for another 15 years without complications, but it's not my choice, is it?  Whatever will be--will be...God's will, not mine...

I appreciate the prayers... I surely do and have seen much happen that is beyond human understanding, especially here thru this forum... so I covet and appreciate the prayers of each and everyone and not all who offer prayers post their doing so...

So thanks to those who share via posts and those who just pray quietly...

THANK YOU ALL!  :thumbsup: :notworthy:

Thanks to all as always...

I think it went well enough, barring complications.  It was less uncomfortable then the biopsy for sure...

Only negative was they let me lie on the table for an HOUR with my bare butt sticking out in the breeze and that early the rooms were COLD!!!

Minimal bleeding again so that's a good thing...all in all, it's in God's hands...

Thanks to all for the prayers... :bigsmyl:

  Now If memory serves me right I think I know what you mean about "Barring complications"!
If there was any of that stuff left in you I think they should of put a cork in it Doc or things could of erupted like a Volcano and made a mess of the ceiling lol :biglaugh:
  Glad all went pretty good so far and thanks for the texts letting me know how things went. :thumbsup:

Not quite like a Colonoscopy, Keith, but That wasn't my concern...after there can be "bleeding" from various orifices... the antibiotics can cause other issues and I have to take them 8 more days with some dietary restrictions...

Nobody knows if the radiation will cure the cancer but it mostly does, so we'll see... most have no side effects from the radiation, but for now, it a matter of tenderness, healing and stabilizing bowel functions... :o
