Just got back from my VA doctor on this rainy Monday morning. It was a good visit. I went over my prostate situation with my VA doctor. He confirmed what I had already come to the conclusion, that even if I did have prostate cancer (which I will find out this Friday when I see my urologist doctor), it might not be necessary to undergo any of the radical treatments that so often leave the patient worse off than before the cancer was detected. He advised a "watch and wait." We will see how I feel about this when I receive the news this Friday about my prostate biopsy.

The reason I keep seeing my VA doctor is that he is coming from a different perspective. He's not in this to make money by getting in as many patients as possible and running (sometimes) unnecessary tests (for liability reasons). My VA doctor is there for my well being without any other ulterior motives or pressures, not that my other doctors are "bad guys", which they aren't. But it always pays to have an objective opinion and that is what I got today.
On the way back from the Georgetown VA Outpatient facility this rain drenched morning (so glad it's not snow), we passed a field covered with Canadian snow geese. From a distance they look like snow in the field.
The snow geese migrate down here to eastern coastal plains of southern Delaware to spend the winter. The farmers complain that they eat the roots of their plantings but I love seeing them.
By the time we got home, I noticed that the field next to our acre lot was also covered with the snow white geese. I snuck up on them and took this video. I was afraid they would all fly away but they didn't. Aren't they beautiful?
I do love living here in southern Delaware!
