Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We're hoping this will get updates to our wonderful circle quickest.
Michael's incredible team of doctors were able to detect prostate cancer early, despite the fact that he was not testing positive on typical bloodwork or symptomatic. This early detection gives everyone great confidence that he will recover well from the procedure with a very good long-term outlook. Frankly, we already had a great long-term outlook (if you know what I mean), but specifically in connection with the "Big-C", great strides have been made in treating successfully when detected early.
Mike will have his surgery via a Davinci robot guided by a brilliant surgeon, Dr. Yoshida, who had performed nearly 3000 of these with great outcomes.
After a brief hospital stay, he'll come home to recover. Currently, they don't think chemo or radiation will be required. Everything will be confirmed after surgerical pathology comes back, though.
Till then, we needed to let you know the gratitude we feel for the golden friendships we have and for all your prayers and support. Stay tuned for periodic updates as they come in. ❤️
