There are times when you just have to pray, and hold on

If any of you have watched the recent HBO mini series, The Pacific, there was a quote I had written down from Episode 2. I'm not sure the exact context of the statement. The series, produced by the same team that produced 'Band of Brothers', provides a glimpse of what these wonderfully brave men went through in order to defend our country. It's rather gut wrenching at times.

The quote, "There are times when you just have to pray, and hold on", stuck with me.With treatment and a doctor appointment coming up once again, I find myself in the 28 day funk I have mentioned here before. These four weeks between appointments just seem to fly by some months. 

I'm feeling great and believe, as Dr. S pointed out, that the radiation continues to provide benefits. Even with his recently positive comments, I don't know what will happen next week, next month, or next year, but then again, do any of us? 

No worries, I'm fine, it's just one of those moments when I find myself holding on and praying.

Hang in there David.... Experiencing an extended period of combat IS like your fight with PCA.
Been there done that got the "T" shirt. (on both counts) And Im still praying and holding on.

Tell Dr. S. I said "Hey Doc!" but I doubt if he will remember me.

I'm so happy to read your blog today and learn that your PSA came down so much. I'm keeping positive thoughts going for you out here in Southern California. I check in periodically ever since the day I heard you on the Dennis Miller show. You captured something in my heart that day, David, and I haven't forgotten you.
