My NP called and said I have autoimmune disease (Sarcoidosis) since the ACE test was high.  That is the reason for my ALT/AST numbers rising and out of range.  She is ordering additional blood tests, chest x-ray, and wk 20 VL.

Sorry to hear about the Sarcoidosis and hope it resolves itself after tx.  Aside from the resulting AST/ALT numbers, everything looks good.  Your ANC looks to be holding its own with a little help of Neupogen on occasion.  It looks like your tx team is keeping a good eye on your progress.  Keep on chugging along and stay warm :-)

Jules, you know I am thinking of you and I am sending positive energy, warm thoughts, and the best of wishes your way.   I know you are a very strong and courageous woman. You will prevail. (And, hopefully this will resolve after Tx.)

Jules, I'm so sorry to hear you have another new diagnosis to deal with. I hope it is just a temporary response due to the HCV meds, and I'm sending lots of good energy your way to help you stay strong. Hang in there!
