"Hi Susan,  Like you I hate when people say that prostate cancer is the best kind of cancer to get, as if there isn’t any bad cancer to get.  This was my Don’s third occurrence and it came back stronger than ever.  I…"

Hi Kimba, no worries, I too am new at navigating and while I have posted some comments, I haven't reached out to anyone individually.  It's been a while since I've even logged on and I happened to the other day and read your story.  It is so much like mine and the timelines are eerily similar.  I am fast approaching the 2 yr mark and will be out of town.  Your Don had prostate, my Donald had testicular.  I agree, every time it came back it was stronger and he was weaker.  It was definitely the aggressive one of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and it just wouldn't go away for good. 

I would love to learn more about your group in the Keys if it is open to a new member.   The second year the reality of it seems to hit as the first year you are just going thru the motions in a fog - and everyone here, unfortunately, understands. At least there is a place we can reach out and discover we aren't alone in our feelings and that one day we will pull thru this.
