This is a follow-up to my January and February posts. In January I reported that an increase in my PSA would necessitate a prostate biopsy and in February I reported that the biopsy was inconclusive and would require another biopsy in April.

It was not fun, but was necessary. The doc must have taken seven or eight tissue samples, and I could feel each incision. Afterward I felt weak and light headed but was able to walk home; on the way I stopped at the Park Slope Sweet Melissa Patisserie on Seventh Avenue and got a chocolate […]

Flight was noisy but OK–excellent seats (emergency exit seat with empty space in front of me), only two and a half hours. At Jacksonville airport our luggage was on the conveyor belt when we arrived, and Alamo upgraded us to a Chrysler 300. […]

Follow up to the earlier contraception issue post. We met Shoshana’s new gynecologist yesterday, and she is wonderful (I was there as an interested party to the issue of choosing a form of contraception). She sees no reason Shoshana should not continue taking hormonal contraceptives for the next 3-4 years, but is switching her to […]
