I received some bad news from my Dr. today concerning my cancer. He said I still have it in the capsule of my prostate. That it went from seven to nine. The test that determines the cancer in your body. The good news was that they had got it out of my lymph nodes and fatty tissue around my prostate. But that it had penetrated the capsule around my prostate. So he called me after I got home and told me he had talked to the pathologist and they had decided to agressively go after the cancer with hormone therapy and chemo. So thats where I stand. He wants to wait till I get feeling better before he starts the chemo. So please keep up the prayers if you can feel it in your hearts. Thanks and God Bless. mike

Mike, this is obviously something that we did not want to hear but I am glad you shared it with us anyway. As always, you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
