Good news and bad news from the doctor: bad news, I have prostate cancer; good news it’s the smallest detectable size (so guys, get those annual PSA blood tests), the tumor has the lowest percentage of cancer, cure rate is 92-98 percent, and—here’s the best news—he said treatment is easier with a “skinny” person like me. Skinny?! That made this pudgy guy’s day!

I’m definitely leaning toward radiation which has none of the undesirable side-effects of surgery. (However, Japanese movies make me a little concerned with the effects of radiation: “The Prostate That Ate Tokyo” and “Godzilla vs. Prostate Monster.”)

Thanks for your prayers!
