In this season of preparing for the Good News to come, I ran into a bit myself last week.
It was check-up time with Dr. O. and the Oncology team. Dr. O. is the physician that orchestrated my whole green-belly, radiation, Bruce Banner, planting seeds in my flower garden thing.
Well the whole ordeal started with a simple blood test, PSA’s and the reading there of. You want your PSA to be low, near zero I understand. My initial PSA of 6.5 sent me to see Dr. O. and I had a PSA as high as 7.5 before my procedure.
Well last Tuesday the good doctor said my newest PSA registered a 1.5. (Yayyy!) I asked him what his target PSA, or my GOAL. Dr. O. says his job is to get it to a 0.2.
So I asked him his time frame for accomplishing his goal? He said over the next 1-2 years. He followed up that he was very excited with good news to start!
But I tell you he was not the most excited one in the room!
With a little luck I should be around for a long, long time he says. And if I can just get the kinks out I can start working on my immortality; again.
But you see…I have kept this news largely to myself for the last week or so, really just to bubbling over with joy to do anything.
So I wanted to ask you, If YOU got good news, such as this what would you do?
How would you celebrate?
I can’t tell you what I actually did and spoil the survey!
Suffice it to say, I was the last patient of the day, it was late, and I pass right by Dunkin Donuts on the way out of the parking lot.
I’m so boring!
But I can sing Auld Lang Syne a few more times!
OK, you got me.
I could never really sing that song anyway…
