    I know that you understand.
    The surgeon was most optimistic and as you know, there's a lot to do before surgery.
    He has to go in for a complete workup to make sure that he's healthy for surgery, which he should be because he is in good physical condition.
    We're just taking it a day at a time and trying not to look too far ahead or give into fear.

    I freaked out having the breast cancer scare and was a mess by the time I went for the ultrasound and then six months later for the 6 month followup, I was more calm, but there was that fear.
    They did say this last time that I was cancer-free, but I have to go every 6 months because there is something.

    The following week, my husband had the biopsy and he had that fear, but he wasn't overly fearful - he was nothing like I was.
    Then we had to wait a week for the results and then hearing that he had cancer was just a moment of OMG.
    The surgeon was really good about it though and very reassuring in explaining everything.
    He gave us a lot of hope and he said that he wouldn't want the operation, but if he was going to get prostate cancer, he'd want my husband's numbers.
    We're just taking it a day at a time and my husband is so strong in dealing with this that he helps me.

    Thank you so much for your comment.
