So if you have a father, husband or son over the age of fifty they need to ask for a PSA test, Gary's test was a routine -oh your fifty we need to check your PSA , if you have a father that has had prostrate cancer you need to be tested at 45-
Gary's cancer both of them have been found because he had tests- his Kidney cancer was found in a scan from his gallbladder, this cancer was found in a follow-up after his kidney surgery-
This surgery sounds scary , but we are hopeful and positive that it has been caught before spreading to any other organs.
I am taking each day as it comes lately, staying busy and enjoying doing nothing! A little crafting here and there, spending time sitting on the porch, planning what we are going to do when surgery is over and hopefully life returns to normal.
I'll be back blogging soon, until then keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
