As we close out Phase 1 (pre-op stage) and head into Phase 2 (recovery stage) I want to thank all those that have been so instrumental through prayer, support and love. We couldn't have made it this far without you. We have had incredible friends, family, surgeons, urologists, pastors, survivors, prayer warriors, house sitters, this list goes on. I also want to thank those of you who have had the courage to share your stories through blogging; Darren Ritch, Michael Vinecki and family, Rabbi Ed Weinsberg, through awareness; Athletes for A Cure (Zagarinos), Prostate Cancer Foundation, and Livestrong. I'm sure I missed many more.
I feel that the blog lost it's way and became a story this past week, understand it was a story, our story. But I want us to get back to the facts dealing with prostate cancer awareness. My intentions will be to keep posting my recovery updates on a weekly basis for those of you interested and searching for some answers. I can tell you ahead of time that this will be based on the struggles of recovery for continence and erectile function (and we may have to be black and white in our blogging.) I promise to do my best in using appropriate and discrete language.
