Today's milestone is a tough one.
Five years ago today I officially found out I had Prostate Cancer.
Here's a link to that blog entry:

I vividly remember sitting in a conference room at work taking the call from my doctor.
Wow, the emotions come roaring back.
I took this call and walked out of the office and cried the whole way home.
The weekend turned out to be the bottom emotionally. Mary and I cried, a lot!
The thing is, we recovered very quickly and by Monday evening when I came home from work, she grabbed me and told me that although we may not beat the monster, we weren't giving up, and most of all, we weren't going to spend any time feeling sorry for ourselves.
For the last five years we have continued down this path, finding the positive and not letting the negative get us down. We have not and will not dwell on the statistics. I'm in a different place now; a much, much different person.
