A Different Course

The brief Holiday is over and it is back to normal life, if you can call it that. S and I had a great game of Mini Golf, she beat me 56 to 60, par 46, well deserved! That night I received an email from my Oncologist in Newcastle NSW. He suggests that I see him in 3-4 months from now. I was so relieved to receive this news as I do not wish to leave my beloved S any sooner than I have to. My flight is booked for early July….

Unfortunately I will not make the required 12 months living in Canada before I can apply for permanent residency, so I am not sure what will happen there. I don’t know how long I will have to stay in Australia, but I plan to return as soon as I can. S told me that if I have to stay longer she will come out and stay with me.

As for treatment, who knows? I guess it will be the usual run of tests and jabs, try this, try that and see what happens. I wonder sometimes, are we treating the psa or are we treating the disease? I feel fine, I have no symptoms of cancer. If you saw me you would say he is pretty fit for a 70 year old!

Tonight I give my maiden speech at Toastmasters. I really enjoy doing this, it helps take my mind off other things. I am a little apprehensive, but well prepared. Will let you know how it goes…..

  1. I’m so glad to hear your situation is starting to clear up. I’m surprised that the oncologist doesn’t want to see you sooner. I’m very glad S will go to Australia to be with you, if a longer stay is required. You should demand a rematch on the mini-golf course!

    1. I was surprised about that too. I don’t care if the PSA goes up if I can stay with S a little longer. As long as there are no serious symptoms.. A rematch might not help, S started atrociously but improved with every hole. Worth a try though just for fun!
