Finally, after nearly a year after diagnosis with stage 4 PCA, DC has reached “within normal PSA levels” at 3.3! It’s been a long and winding road and one heck of a roller coaster but I’m happy to say he is on a good path for now. I understand “for now” is a fluid term. I am praying he can stay here for a while to let his nerves and his mental health unwind. He is a pessimist, always has been since he was little, so keeping his spirits up and positive has been my personal struggle. The doctor can tell him he is doing great, we all can for that matter, but every time he gets up to pee, he contradicts us in his mind. I am working on him to keep moving, do his strength exercises, eat high potassium foods. He is listening for once! You CAN teach an old dog new tricks…imagine that!
Be well and Happy Fathers Day to all you wonderful, beautiful dads out there!
All of you, fathers or not, are loved and cherished beyond words. Keep up the good fight Warriors!
