Some waiting is done; cancer plan; bought house (Click for full story)

Though not a long wait by some people's terms, our six-week wait is over. Six weeks from a suspicion of prostate cancer to the definition of a plan to combat it. We met with Dr Patrick Miller, of Ironwood Cancer & Research Centers, today to discuss how to deal with the prostate cancer. Dr James Fishman, of Central Arizona Urologists, had made the diagnosis and confirmed it and sent me on to Dr Miller for treatment. I am already a patient of Ironwood's Dr Boo Ghee Low, with CLL, and I will be working with both Dr Low and Dr Miller in this program. The last six weeks has been hard on Elaine and me. Starting with the uncertainty, then the diagnosis but no plan, and then waiting for the plan. The diagnosis was not the hardest thing to deal with, though any cancer diagnosis is not easy to deal with; it was the uncertainty of what comes next, and its affect on our lives.
