Had tx class, got Roche co. bag with goodies, info, journal, injection dvd
3 others in class, went over medication info, injection example, I thought stomach injections were for rabies. Went over sx, phone numbers, I guess I would figure I needed to call someone if I am vomiting blood, or yellow.
A lot of innocent cracks and jokes made by this one disabled guy, don't know if it was nerves or not. Dr. Schwartz was not amused. She said this was very serious. Lighten up, it makes the medicine go down better I thought.
Very informative, went over Viral load and labs, 1st after one week, clinic than every 2 weeks for eight weeks, than once a month. If HCV RNA is negative or 2 logs down, continue tx, if not virus is not responding, so tx will be discontinued. Signed a research ok form, took our bloodwork. Should get meds in 2 weeks, Whaaaaaaaaat!, Get poked and wait. Felt ok with info. I am sure I will have more questions.
I went to an AA meeting after Starbucks, than an NA meeting at home. Had a good walk and run with Luke, felt rejuvenated.
Now Luke has me up at 3 for some reason, no skunks though. It may be the predsnisone.
Daily reflections, I read at the AA meeting was on patience, how timely.

headshop,
     Glad the tx class went well, too bad about having to wait for the meds though.  Not like they didn't know you were coming, but I guess they need time to look at your final set of labs to get back.  Isn't it funny how life works like that?  Your feeling all impatience, and your AA meeting is about having patience.  Fingers crossed that you will respond, even though the treatment might be as hard to take as HVC.  Sending you nothing but positive energy.  I started to have a problem with one of my dogs waking up everynight a 3:00am to use the restroom.  I live on the water in Florida, so some nights I would step out on our boat dock.  Well one night I heard someone talking out on the street.  I stepped to the side of my house, it was my neighbors daughter talking to her friend.  They had just gotten home from work at a bar.  They close at 2:00am...  My dog had heard her pull up each night, and then it just became a pattern that she should use the restroom.  She headed back to college, and amazingly enough no more 3:00am restroom breaks. So 2 weeks meens that you should get your Rx around the 24th?   I'll have my fingers crossed for you.  The sooner to start the sooner to finish.
Have a Great Day,
AmeliaFufu
