Update: Today, in Seattle, I had radioactive seed implant surgery, or as I like to refer to it "Precision micro-nuclear air strike". It went well. I was gratified to learn it would be "lights out" for me during the procedure. During my initial chat with the anethesiologist in the OR I somehow warped right through to the recovery room. I'm resting and doing pretty well. We plan to be home on Saturday at which time I must clean off and get my modeling bench organized. Therapy, you know.

The only really bad news from my doctor is that I will need to forego applicaitons of the modelers Scotish fortification elixihr for a few months. I expect my build speed will increase somewhat but I will miss out on a few subtle modeling insights.

Seriously, I will be radioactive for a while. The seeds have a 17 half-life. So, no one sitting on my lap for a few weeks. Fortunately, our kids are now adults and we're waiting on grandkids (hint, hint) so no worries there.

Oh, were you referring to my glowiing personality?

Eindecker,
     That's the spirit! Pardon the immediate shift to the other kind of spirit, the Scottish elixir, but the good news is it will age longer during your penance period, think of how good it will be two or three months hence! 8) Once your Modelling desk is cleaned up and organised you can get right at it, can't think of better therapy.........
Cheers,
Lance

It's so great to hear some good news, I'm truly happy for you. Glad you can use your past-time as some therapy, but bummer about the elixir. Oh well, can't have it all, huh?

Great news to hear that you are on the road to recovery. When you clean up the bench you can leave a space ready for the glass.

Hope you do not glow so much that you will not need a lamp in the evenings…..

Sorry to hear about your diagnosis, glad about your prognosis. Not to steal your thread but I too am a Prostrate Cancer suvivor, free for almost 8 years now. Lucky to have early detection (40 yrs old) removal and no dysfunction or problems to date. I know you'll recover well and at the modeling desk in no time. Just wished I found out sooner and I would have tried to meet you when you were in Seattle, I'm just west of there across the Sound.  Oh well maybe another time, take care.

Thanks, everyone, for your kind comments and support. It seems the recovery is worse than the treatment, but I think I'm out of the woods on that score. I'm slowly returning to normal, whatever that may be. We have been going through some very cold and snowy spells here in Colorado at 7000' near the Sangre de Cristo mountains. Our house was originally built in the 1890s and not as well insultated as a new one would be. Not having a spray booth, this puts a damper on my airbrush work. I am at the point where I should be painting the major assemblies on the Roland C.II but, frankly, it's been too damn cold. I may move ahead and just brush paint everything. No progress over the last week.

Ollie: Glad to hear from another cancer survivor. Early detection was good and I congratulate you on your successful procedure. Too many urologists are not up to date on modern treatment methods and are not sufficiently competent surgeons to do that without issues. I don't know if we will need to return to Seattle, although I really like the area and practically live in sushi joints there. If so, I will definitely give you a shout and we can get together for a chat. You all do have coffee shops in Seattle, yes? (lol)
