While Dad & I knew he was having a health challenge,neither of us knew just how bad it was. I had to call an ambulance for him in late April,there was talk of sending him home and he went into ICU the next day and passed away less than 24 hrs later. Having lived with him for the past 17 yrs,this was a huge shock. Been handling his estate,and doing all the legal stuff- in addition to making sure the bills are paid and getting used to living alone. Miss him terribly.

Guys,if you ever get a red flag from your dr about your prostate,please please don't ignore it. Don't avoid getting checked by a Dr either because you're afraid.

Sorry for your loss Sherrie, and that's a good call out you made about prostate checks.

I have a check yearly (as a veteran I get it free).

Kia Kaha.

My thoughts and prayers to you and your family.  It's difficult losing a loved one and stressful taking care of the estate and all the personal effects of the one you loved.  Sounds like you're getting through it as best you can.  I can empathize.  I lost my husband of 50 years in January and I've done all the things you're having to do..... including learning to live alone.  Isn't easy, but must be done.

So sorry to hear this, Sherrie.

My dad had a bout with prostate cancer in his late 60s, but it was caught early and went into remission through treatment. Still, it's enough to have that in the family history that my doctor has been monitoring mine closely for the past 25 years. There's been some controversy over PSA tests, but as near as I can tell they've all been related to false positives, so I tell my doctor to keep them up, and when they show positive, then we'll worry about whether and what to do.
