2015 PSA is…

Just got my 2015 “ultra sensitive” PSA result today. Drumroll…

.031

YES!!! Still undetectable in 8+ years! I’m so thankful and totally undeserved of God’s mercy. I’m still very thankful for the screening I took part of back in October 2006. Without it I wouldn’t have known and would not have been able to experience “early detection.” So why have some put a stop to community PSA screenings??? Stay tuned. I have a lot to say about this. But for now, I’ll just smile and say, “Thank You, LORD!” 😀

I’m 50 today!

It’s April 7. I have reached the landmark age of FIVE–0!!! It is totally by GOD’s mercy that I’m able to reach this age, 8+ years after being diagnosed with prostate cancer. I don’t deserve to be here. I’m so thankful to be here for my wife and kiddos and to help many brothers who go through the same thing. Just had a brother approach me this past Saturday and inform me that he tested positive. He asked for prayer and I said let’s do this now! Then yesterday, I went to my urologist for another annual PSA check up. Should have the results soon and you know I will post them here. For 8+ years I’ve been going to Methodist Hospital in Dallas, more specifically the Texas Urology Specialists, to get the “ultra-sensitve” PSA with the more accurate reading, as opposed to the general < or = to .05. My doctor said since I’ve remained rock solid in the undetectable range he doesn’t see a need for me to continue getting the ultra-sensitive results. But I really like to know so I said, “Let’s do it one more time.” Shoot, I may ask for it again next year! 😉 Stay tuned for the results in a few days.
