My blessings are always counted

Oh, what a lucky man he was is.
That’s a line from an old 1970’s rock group, Emerson, Lake and Palmer.
It just reminds me of how lucky and blessed I am.

As next week nears and we take the next major step in this journey I find myself unbelievably thankful.
My life is surrounded by a compassionate family, wonderful friends, and the support of my boss, insurance
company and more. (the latter might seem strange to include but as opposed to some horror stories,
my insurance experience has been very smooth).

The past six years have flown by. That might be hard to imagine, but it’s true. At the same time, life has changed so much that I forgot what it was like before, when things were"normal". Normal left us so long ago, but that’s not a bad thing. We have settled into this medical circus and it has become our normal. Believe it or not, I’m OK with this.

Finally, please send your positive thoughts and prayers to all my PCa brethren out there....

You continue to inspire so many.

For those on your post I pray:

Hail Mary, full of grace.
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.

God bless you all and God always be with you and yours.

David, keep the faith. God had chosen you to do something exceptional. And you are listening to Him.

David ,
Thank You for including Me.
Good Luck in Atlanta , my thought is that the trial will open much closer to home for you soon.My local rural clinic says they have been selected as a site , though they are not listed as one of the 37.
