No more waiting!

The moment you have all been waiting for has arrived. OK, the moment Mary and I, and some of you have been waiting for has arrived...the nurse just called!!!!

Did all the exclamation points give it away?
Yes, it is good news! Maybe I'll break down and have a pizza this weekend!
Probably not, but maybe.....

Anyway, Mary wins this month, she guessed 15 and the number was:


Here's an inventory of the historical numbers:
Date: PSA:
4/30/07 16.25
4/2/07 17.68
3/5/07 21.87
2/5/07 20.90
1/8/07 18.90
12/11/06 24.86
11/13/06 43.61
10/16/06 51.48 (Started "High Dose" Ketoconazole and Hydrocortisone, 10/01)
9/11/06 83.97 (started Zometa)
8/23/06 41.77
8/18/06 54.66
(no tests in June or July)
5/19/06 11.37 (stopped Casodex)
4/3/06 4.25
3/5/06 1.45
1/27/06 0.44
12/28/05 1.85
[some day I'll go find the missing data]
Pre-treatment test: 2/?/05 219
Original test: 12/?/04 189

I don't know what to say? I know I keep saying this, but I really feel better than I have in months!
I continue to thank God for the strength he has granted to me to deal with this.

This is great news! Even better that you are feeling so good! While we are more than a number, it sure is good to see these numbers! Thanks for posting the updates. It helps all of us who are fighting this battle.
