|Today's late afternoon sun out in our backyard|
Have you noticed? The days are getting longer. Happy days! I love this time of year when the days get longer. Every day, a few more minutes of sunshine until June 19th, when the sun doesn't go down until after 9 pm. I love it!
Only a couple more months to the first anniversary of my seed implants (brachytherapy) to treat my prostate cancer. The good news is that my PSA count continues to go lower. Before surgery my PSA score was 8.4. Between 0-4 is considered "safe." I was told that at my age I would probably die of something else besides prostate cancer but I didn't want to take that chance of a long, deli bating and painful death of the prostate cancer spreading to my bones or other organs of my body. My prostate cancer was localized in my prostate gland. I've had three blood tests since my surgery last May 2nd. The scores have been 1.9, 1.9 and last week, 1.2. It's going in the right direction. I continue to have bothersome side effects from the brachytherapy, the main ones being fatigue. I can control that by taking longer afternoon naps (a couple hours). The other side effects I won't go into here on this family blog so use your imagination.

I'm putting the final touches on the upcoming Bloggerpalooza. The caterer has been contacted as well as the entertainment (hypnotist). I have most of the prizes and yesterday I was at Michael's and purchased cute little sayings to attach to the name tags. I already have the bling which I've been collecting during the year. Also some really special "prizes" to surprise unsuspecting bloggers.
The clock is ticking folks. Bloggerpalooza will be here before we know it. I'm glad it's in the springtime, just when the daffodils are bursting through the frozen ground.
