My PSA number for one. Yesterday's test yielded a 4.25, up from 1.45 in March.
Mary asked if I was O.K.? I told her I am so ambivalent to bad news it's as if nothing effects me right now.
I suspected it was going to go up. It's a trend. Up for three or four months, down for three or four months. So when May rolls around, my number will likely be back up to the 7's. I pray it's not, but that's reality. I'll get bone and CT scans again on May 10th and meet with the Oncologist on the 19th of May and determine next steps. It is likely as a next step we'll start the Casodex again and see if we can get that to bring the number down for a few months, or more.
There is not much else to say but that, it is what it is.
Perhaps that's my slogan from this point forward……"It is what it is".
