For those of you who read my blog from time to time, I have a few updates to share with you. If you don’t regularly read my blog, this post will have no context, so you might want to move on. Or, you can click on the three subheadings below to link to the relevant posts.
We’ve had our electric car for nearly four months and I love it. It handles great, it’s fun to drive, it’s quiet, and, given the price of a gallon of gas where I live…
…I love smiling as I pass by all these gas stations and never have to fill up my tank.
The electric bikes I ordered online were delivered and I dropped them off at a bike shop to be fully assembled by professionals. This week I’m having a hitch installed on our electric car and later in the week my bicycle rack capable of carrying two electric bikes should be delivered. If all goes well, my wife and should be taking our first e-bike rides this coming weekend.
I had an appointment with a urologist last week, and after reviewing my blood work and the MRI, he concluded that I probably do have prostate cancer. He said the next step would be for me to have a biopsy to confirm that. However, because (1) my PSA blood test showed levels only slightly above the high end of the range, (2) the mass is a relatively small one, and (3) cancer of the prostate is generally slow growing and men of my age are likely to die from something else before succumbing to prostate cancer, I said I’d prefer to take a “watch & wait” approach. So he agreed to wait for six more months and to take another blood test to see if my PSA number has increased enough to make it concerning.
