      Actually, my Cancer was my right Kidney and it was all removed very soon after they found it.

      Ray, you're in my prayers. I too have had prostate cancer for the last 4 years with. I've had two biopsy's. Fortunately it is the slowest growing kind according to extra tests. But has to be watched carefully. I hope yours is over and done with!

      Hi Ray, Like you, I had prostate cancer. My surgery Aug, 2014. My psa had been rising fast but was caught early. For 3 yrs after I had tests every 6 Mo. Last year doc said "see you in a year".
      With news of Mike Slive's passing due to recurrence, initial diagnosis in '90's, wondering if 6 mo. check up is better. How about you...how often do you get checked out.
      Hope all is well...Thanks! wrp

        I have an semi-annual checkup. A couple of weeks a go latest one is OK for no prostate cancer. Still have BPH.

      FWIW, I did warn about the language in that video, in case people are at work or just don't want to hear cursing. I always thought the "Always Be Closing" scene from that movie was great. It has a cult following of its own.
      1. RayGator
        It could be posted on Too Hot. Mods there might be OK with it. Be their decision.

      Ray, you remember Bob Disney? Had a sweet swing, crazy as a run over dog! He's a friend and would like to contact you!

      haven't stopped by in a while...just curious....was there a ban on Eason posts? thanks-Craig

      I do not know if anyone is monitoring what diehardgator960608 is posting but it's pretty inflammatory. In the years I've been here I've never reported anyone but this person sure doesn't sound anything like a Gator.

      RAY - Can you help me? I posted a Twitter thing that I thought was funny and used the same heading it had -- was going to put (JOKE) after it but posted it after writing my thoughts at the bottom of the Twitter thing -- apparently has everyone in a tizzy (I get it -- I freaked out when I saw the headline on Twitter). Can you fix title, please? Thank you!
    13. Zepgator
      Ray - how do I report someone that is posting curse words towards me? I'm not asking that he be banned, just contacted.
    14. RayGator
      So far things have been going OK. Have follow-up checkups from time to time to see if there any more Cancer problems.
    15. DawgFanFromAlabam
      Ray - still doing OK?
    16. RayGator
      Everything has been going fine lately. Sometimes hard to believe I actually had Cancer surgery. Looking forward to Christmas.

      Hey man how are you holding up in the midst of everything? I thought i didnt need a thread to check up on you.

      Ray, Hope you are making progress daily. Glad you're back and remembering you in prayer for continued healing.

      why was my Kentucky-USCe thread deleted? please advise...THX
    20. jimzgator
      What you guys did on the recruiting forum with the player profiles was good, but takes so much time to go through each one . Moving forward into the 15 class of kids if we could consolidate all this and be able to go to one page , whether its the QB board, OL board, RB board, etc. Are you following what im pitching to you on this ?
