Well, today is Sunday, August 9, 2009.

I am happy, healthy, and retired from editing.

I am still here.

Thanks to Dr. Charles Myers of the American Institute for the Diseases of the Prostate, Earlysville, Virginia. ( and to Dr. David Butler, radiation oncologist, of St. Luke's Hospital, Chesterfield, Missouri.

I want to thank my wife Ann, who gave me a card that said, "Life is slippery, here, take my hand." Thanks to Kelly and Andrea, for always being there for me. And thanks to Ian, Joann, Eli, and Ben, for giving me a future to hope for.
These two doctors saved my life; my family gives it meaning.
