I was got my new eye yesterday. Wed. I was in the ocularist office for 3 hours in the morning and 3 hours in the afternoon. I went back yesterday for the final fitting. It looks GREAT to me! I may have to have the top built up a little more, but for now, it is just fine. It was amazing watching the ocularist color the artificial eye right in front of me. This guy is a true artist.

Mt PT getting ready for the prostate surgery is going well. They hook electrodes up and measure my muscle control after practicing my kegel exercises every two weeks. I have improved the muscle control in a short period of time. My PT person told me that few men do this prior to surgery. She usually only sees men after the surgery if they have problems with bladder control. I hope this makes a difference for me.

I will have the prostate surgery 8/15. Hoping for a 2-3 day stay in the hospital. Isn't it amazing how many people will share horror stories about someone they know who had complications from a similar surgery? I had someone tell me she knew someone who was in the hospital for 9 days with this surgery with "terrible complications". "Great to know. Thanks for sharing." I will have this surgery via the surgeon controlled robot.

My CT and bone scans were clear. So, that was good news!

Thank you all for the kind words and encouragement.
