Just a quick note to say hi! You just made my day - What Fantastic News!!! I am going to go pour myself a gingerale to Celebrate..."here's to you, my Friend... to SVR, to minimal side effects, strength and courage to perservere an overcoming attitude, peace in your soul, faith that deepened through this experience". Keep us posted, please, want to know how you're doing.
I am very encouraged and happy for you,Tim!
Remember that you are in my prayers,
Just a quick note to say hi! Hope and pray that you have the best possible outcome in this study. I think that you'll be pleased with the care you receive at AMR. I was pulled from the Anadys study Sept 1 in week 22. Don't know if I got the drug + soc or placebo. Results will be unblinded in 2012. Had been sched'd for 48 weeks. Hoping for a future interferon-free study. I go back for another follow-up check early Dec. I actually miss seeing my "team"each week as they have been very supportive and caring. I have lots of respect for Dr L. and Staff. Just hated the double-blind, random, placebo aspect of the study. ..the not knowing and waiting. Keep me/us posted, will you, AKH?
You have a great attitude and you can do this!
You deserve a big bear hug! Wish I could send this everyday, but no energy!! Not sure where it went, am looking for it, but it is hiding on me!! LOL
I hope all is well and that you are keeping the positive thoughts running...for a cure...for new livers...for the government to get off thier collective butts and do something! I totally forgot Thanksgiving, so, just to be in the loop, Merry Christmas and have a nice holiday!! See, I am not late, just timely!!!
Hugs and always thinking of all my sisters and brothers with this virus, in this war
