good news..

Just got off the phone with the doc, got about a dozen calls to make, but cause of the prayers and all the wonderful comments and prayers you guys gave me to start with i wanted to get this to my brothers (and sisters) ..

The tests have come back clear... As the psa has kept going up they know somethings up, and its somewhere... BUT .. this is a nothing deal compared to what they had thought we were dealing with.. Just a find and cure deal..

Guys old Greg your loyal friend and padre is gonna be around for awile...

watch me get hit by a truck now.... sheesh...

The issue is friendship and prayers... thank you for both.. God bless you guys, and Ebear and Sam... feel free to discontinue the check... You guys have no idea the joy around the Edwards home today.....

Check ...

Oh yeah

I had a temporary crown put on a molar yesterday.
Chipped a tooth a few weeks back, no pain at all. Finally got in to see doc. ( he's a damn good guy, no bullshit and reasonable prices. Hunts and fishes.) I walked in with no pain whatsoever.
I was ready to drag out the channellocks last night! I though maybe he screwed up.
Woke up this morning, not an ounce of pain. Thank goodness!
The permanent is to be put on in October. ( first available opening on his schedule).
Greasy, Good Luck with the toofus bro!

No retail so to speak

I will do personal sales orders tho. But that'll be the extent of it.

Yes Sir it is. Thats why I have called GP so much, Im more of a hands on learner, and its sometimes hard for me to process things, until I can either get dirty from it, or have a good visual understanding of it.

Penn Foster. Its ok, but I have found that the authors are biased to their favorite guns. My last book was on handguns, and the only ones he broke down was a Colt Government Model and a S&W revolver. I noticed it in the shotgun and rifle study as well. Oh well. Maybe we can swap notes someday!! Good Luck!

Great news

Greg, that's wonderful news you got from your doctor. I know that all the prayers had effect. It felt good to be able to add my small bit to try to help. Now we should all offer prayers of thanks to God our Heavenly Father for this blessing to Greg.

U have a better advantage on this than I do. We have a shop here, but they only sell, and may put a scope on every once in awhile. This is big time Hunting country, and I know I'll get the work, but only messing around with my own gun collection will make it a bit harder for me when a different one comes in. Good luck w/ getting the job. That would help U out tremendously.

No (as in for real No) comments needed guys, just joy, and an end to this nightmare...

Lyle is right about making the marriage stronger.. The doc's had pretty well sent messages to prepare for the worst.. This was not an embellishment..There was no reason for the PSA to quadruple, and then DOUBLE after the procedure (thats still an issue, but now a find and cure, as opposed to stage 4) The only reason we knew was reading documents that we were sending on to the VA.. The docs didn't want to cause extra fear.. When we did question them they made it clear just how bad it was, and hence the posts to you guys...

I don't have words to express what its like going from 1 to 3 years, IF they could treat, there was a good chance it was going to be palliative care.. We had to face the worst fears.. and mine was made so much worse by the thought of leaving Gloria alone and 2 hrs from the kids..

Now the little things.. watching the kids graduate...i could go on and on... you guys have the picture... im going to say this one time.. and honestly (with out being "controlling") no reason for any response at all.. i want to share one thing with ya all...When i put that first post up i was dealing with fear like i never have had in my life.. All of your responses.. (i could recite everyone of them, cause ive read them so often) To this day im ok till i read the one from Ivan.. Anyway...

Your prayers and thoughts (think skipper Sam sorta shocked the old man) made it ok..

I will never forget it... and this closes it out.. i was telling Pard tonight.. (let me tell ya its cool to get 11 pounds of ammo from a brown truck) that i wanted to end all this emotional stuff.. So we end it.. but we end it this way... You guys made it happen.. God bless you all...

No checks necessary...nothing necessary except laughing and having a great time like we always do.. I've got my self all f'n geezer emotional again.. this stops now!.. When Greg comes on later it will be the old Greg again... ya fuck heads.. (sorry Lord, couldn't help it) .. Love you tramps.. and thats the last group hug im taking part in.. I'm already feeling Ebear getting all hot and bothered...

End of post, end of issue.. back to guns and fun..

and real friends..

Well, ya kinda expect the cowboys to make a showing and just get used to the rangers screwing up anything after the all star break.
Honestly I am more bummed about Matt Kenseth and the chase.

I agree with ya ,Might just be me but, NASCAR has been real weird this season, actually, all the sports have been sort of a little off center this year to me??????
I passed on that 243, when I got my hands on it, I was pissed. Was supposed to be in fine shape. Rust in the bore & chamber , & the crown has a hefty ding in it, & the thing looks like it was tossed off the top of a real high mountain.
