    Good morning!
    AMPS 292 shooting 2.75u

    Boomer ate a lot of his overnight fuds. I happened to wake up at 4:30 and he wasn't beside me or in his bed so I got up to check on him and he was sitting on his testing table staring at his feeder which would just have rotated to an empty dish. I popped it open and sure enough the 4:00 fuds were untouched. I scooped some out for him and went btb.

    Boomer has a new favourite food....chicken ff. He used to eat it then stopped. When he was getting so picky about his pm+3 fuds I got desperate, dug back in the cupboard of rejected cans, and found 3 cans of the chicken ff. I bought a case of it yesterday so I'm sure he'll decide tonight that he no longer likes it. :rolleyes:

    DH's appt went well yesterday. It's the first time we've left an appt and actually felt like something is being done. Hormones will start in 7-10 days; the nurse comes to our house to give the injection so we just have to wait for him/her to contact us. Then we have to give the hormones a couple of months to work their magic. Since part of what they do is shrink the prostate, radiation cannot start until the hormones have had a chance to work....so radiation will start in 2 months. He's also been accepted into a clinical trial; he will be randomized into one of two groups so hopefully he's in the group that gets the enhanced radiation.

    Today's photo is of a Coopers Hawk!

    The hawk looks like he's wearing a shawl. :)

    I'm glad you were able to settle on a plan so you know what to expect.

    Great picture. I hope Boomer slides down and surfs today.

    This is really good news about your DH's program. I hope he gets into the enhanced radiation group.

    Poor Boomer, staring at an empty compartment! Maybe in future put a little food into the "empty" compartment. You might get more sleep that way:)

    Cooper's Hawk picture is neat. We have a handmade small bench at camp made by a local artist and he painted a Cooper's Hawk on it. Next spring I'll send you a picture.

    It is nice to have a plan. Good luck with the hormone therapy, hope it shrinks the prostate perfectly so the radiation does its best work!
