Carol: Look out your front window, see the frogs jumping
up and down. See the lizard's leaping? See all of God's critter's
jumping with joy for your good news. You and hubby are on a roll now, how
wonderful, your friend, lillian
I have to share our
wonderful news with you all. My hubby has Hepatitis C & has just
started the treatment. They did a blood test to see what gena (sp?)
type of the virus that he has. The 1st being the oldest strain of
the virus, the hardest to kill, requires the longest treatment time (1
year), and the lowest cure rate (40%). The 2nd & 3rd strains are
weaker strains, with shorter treatment times. HE HAS #3 !!!
Can you believe it ? This will mean only 6 months of
injections & pills, and the cure rate has jumped to 70%. We are
so excited, God is definately with us. With all the bad news & awful
days I have shared, I just wanted to share a great one! As for me, the
hair loss is slowing down, and the fatigue seems to be dropping off.
And perfect timing ... I started knitting an afgan for Michael's
folks for Christmas in flight to Stanford for my consultation &
finished the "strips" tonight ! I now have 3 weeks to sew the
suckers together & crochet around the outside a few times ...
just in time for Santa ! LOL Now I'll have to get off my dead
butt & do some real projects around the house ... like Lillians floors
I promised ! I highly recommend knitting to anyone starting
treatment ... keeps your mind off just how shitty you really feel at the
