Four Great Days

A serious health diagnosis turns into a successful test of the program

Recently I had a colonoscopy. Not my favorite thing to do but at 73 years old it was the right thing to do. During the procedure the doctor examined my prostate and told me that I had a few lumps and should have it checked out. I did, and they turned out to be cancerous.  I decided to have brachytherapy, which is a onetime process of implanting radiation seeds directly into the prostate and that has over a 90% cure rate.
