Good morning Rich
Thanks for replying.
Sometimes the problem with written responses is that they can be difficult to interpret as you can't hear the tone of voice or see the visual cues that we normally use. This can lead to misunderstandings which may have happened here.
Like you I am a Gleason 9 T3b but I am possibly more fortunate in that I am 69 and so the future is not quite such a worrying place to contemplate. I have no children and so I do not have that extra burden of responsibility all of which makes it harder for me to help you as I am not walking this path in your shoes.
What I would ask is that you make the most of each day as regardless of PCa none of us knows how long we have so wasting today worrying about tomorrow robs you of precious time.
Today I shall be driving from Swindon to Dartmoor to drop off students at the start of their Duke of Edinburgh Gold expedition and then I shall drive back. I am looking forward to it. I can't do the pick up on Thursday as I shall be on my way to Canada to visit friends.
I am just trying to say that we share the same diagnosis and with support from family and friends we can simply carry on carrying on until that ceases to be an option.
In the meantime you are still Rich I'm still Kev the difference is that we know we have PCa.
I sincerely hope this isn't the last I hear from you but I respect your decision about that.
My very best wishes to you and your family.
