Paging Doctor Octopus

Paging Doctor Octopus

The surgery is tomorrow (Wednesday). I should get a call today between 1:00PM and 5:00PM to find out exactly what time. So it’s a little like waiting for the cable guy, but not quite that bad. It’s not like they told me to lay myself out on a table, make my own incision, and wait […]

What Lies Ahead (?)

What Lies Ahead (?)

The meeting with the first surgeon scared us even more. But surgery is scheduled for February 9th. That’s much sooner than we expected. About a week later we should have the post-operative pathology report, which will either boost our confidence or dash our hopes. We were hoping for a cocky surgeon who would say “No […]

A couple of suggestions

A couple of suggestions

First, if you’re a man, get your PSA checked at least once a year. If your doctor doesn’t do them, find another doctor. If you’re over 40 and your doctor says they don’t start PSA tests until 50, say you know a guy who’s 43 and has a tougher-than-usual case of it. If your PSA […]

Cancer

Cancer

I think most readers here at this point have been following my progress on Facebook, but for those who haven’t or those who want more detail: It’s cancer. I got the dreaded call on Tuesday and have been in anxiety/panic mode ever since. The urologist who did the biopsy called me and told me this […]

Waiting by the Phone

Waiting by the Phone

The title doesn’t really hold up anymore, of course. Nowadays the phone is waiting by me wherever I am. But you can bet I’ll answer it quickly. This week would be a telemarketer’s dream except that I’m going to have zero patience for calls that aren’t about my prostate biopsy results. I had the biopsy […]

Prostate terror

Prostate terror

My first post here in a long, long time will be a simple one about the cheery topic of prostate cancer. When I started this blog I saw prostate cancer as an old man’s disease. In the intervening years (a) I have learned it can strike (and strike hard) at younger men, too, and (b) […]

Architect of My Own Long Sighs

Architect of My Own Long Sighs

In my childhood, I spent a lot of time with Mike Brady. As you know if you were born before the mid-70s and are not a Communist, Mr. Brady was not only the patriarch of a blended family with six kids, a housekeeper, and a dog, he was also a successful architect. I can tell […]

A Brief Milestone

A Brief Milestone

Wow it’s a busy weekend. Grocery shopping, pool-safety shopping and flower shopping. I’ve been putting the finishing touches on the pool, which means I finally had to take on the uncomfortable, confusing, and not entirely un-dangerous job of relighting the pool heater. The water has been hovering in the 70s which is warm enough for […]

Bear

Bear

We have a lot of video of Bear, the dog we loved to dogsit while his real family was away. Bear often seemed to be with us during family events and he is even included in some informal family photos. It wasn’t just us who admired Bear, either. He had fans all over Michigan. When […]

Jon + Kate + 8 – important part...

Jon + Kate + 8 – important parts of Jon

Walking around with twins tends to break the ice a little in public places and we get asked questions a lot. One of the most common (after “Are they identical?” and “Do they keep you busy?”) is “Have you seen Jon and Kate Plus 8?”. And the answer to that is “yes.” I think Sarah […]
