Last month I turned fifty. This month I received an invitation to join AARP. Are you a senior citizen at fifty?
Last week, Hubs had his semi-annual appointment with his urologist. Two years ago he was diagnosed with prostrate cancer. It was caught very early due to his annual digital exam and annual blood work to check his PSA (prostate-specific antigen) level.
Following his prostatectomy, his PSA has been less than 0.1 - very good!
According to WebMD, prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in men in the United States. This disease does not present any early symptoms, so the PSA is SO important.
I know that most of my readers are female. So I ask you, is your husband over 50? Do you know his PSA? If not, maybe it is time to insist he see his doctor.
My mom and her sister arrived around 7:00 p.m. After showing them around our house, feeding them dinner, and enjoying a little conversation, they are tucked in bed. The eastern half of the United States is safe once again.
