    Well said Jer, you have much more knowledge in this area than I would ever claim to, I was just trying to assure TWD that this was not the end of the world, but also not to delay in getting a prognosis either.

    Me, all I have a the therapy for the knee replacement and it is going well.

    No probs, Sentinel. I appreciate you saying those things because you are correct. And I appreciate your willingness to support people on the forum. I just wanted to add my two cents worth as well since I could give him little more detail.

    Again, thanks for the kind words. They mean a lot right now.
    Sorry about this situation....the fear is natural, but I am glad you also seem to be upbeat about it. At least two things are fortunate... the early detection, and having good medical coverage. All you can do now is proceed to the next step....see what the doctors suggested treatment is.

    Thanks, jeriddian. Your insights and knowledge are a great comfort right now. Like I told Sentinel, I'm more than willing to go the surgical route if that's the easiest way to get rid of the cancer. I'm just anxious right now about what the future has in store for me, what with treatments and all and how it'll affect my life.
    And Beaglebub, thank you too for your words of support. It's good to know my friends are there for me when I need them.

    Today the flooring subcontractor started installing the hardwood floor in Mrs. campy's new upstairs study. He expects to finish it on Monday.

    We had a charity event this morning serving lunch to homeless people at a church in St. Charles. We do that and breakfasts at all three Ronald McDonald houses and dinner for one of them once a month.

    I finished my last day on the temp job today - converted all the files scanned, then e-mailed to me into PDF files on the company's hard drive. The two ladies who'd been sorting, labeling, and scanning those doc's for me finished at noon yesterday. They were going to let me go then, too, if I hadn't told them I still had a lot of scanned stuff to convert. So my supervisor talked to HR, who called my temp agency, who extended my assignment another full day.
    So what started out as a two-week assignment turned into a six-week one. I don't mind; I was glad to have the work since it meant getting paid a decent wage. As much as I hated fighting rush-hour traffic going between work and home, i'd rather put up with that minor nuisance than sit at home all day and not earn a dime.
    It was a little sad to leave this job; the full-time people there were very nice to me. And the job itself was easy enough: Sit at a table all day, poking at a laptop computer as I organized their digital files. And my supervisor agreed to let me use her as a business reference for my job search! That was nice of her....
    Anyway, it's back to the old grind of calling all my temp agencies on Monday, letting them know I'm once more available for any jobs they might find for me.
    I'm also going to see my doctor on Tuesday to discuss the next steps in dealing with my prostate cancer (I still can't believe I'm saying that - part of this seems so unreal to me right now).
    As one chapter ends, another begins....
    Wish me luck, everybody.

    Good luck, TWD!

    As for my day, I visited the farmers' market here in town for the first time. Didn't buy any farmers.

    Well today is the last day I am gainfully employed. My next position is to be a professional lay about.
