Just a quick note to say hi! I started tx. last friday and had a rough weekend with flu sx. Today I woke with a headache but it went away with tylenol. I am very tired but made it thru the day at work. I am a nurse but sit at a desk all day. Thank God for that. I don't think I could of made it if I had to work on the floor. Anyway I do feel pretty crappy and I am not looking forward to shot #2 but I guess it's all I can do at this point. How are you doing?

Contgrat's YOU ARE MY IDOL..... I am happy for you... so does that mean you can now move on with your life and not look back?? That has been one of my biggest questions... at what point do you not have to worry about it and stop testing?

I am doing well, no rescue drugs yet.. my numbers are stable... even went back to 11 from 10.2. Had another vl test this week... will get results next week. I would think that it should be the same UND. I am doing ok.. just don't feel like doing much. never been so bored in my life.

Happy about your good news... talk to you soon.

Funny, I got confused and thought I had not heard from you in awhile...but you had left me notes.. I am not sure what the difference is between notes and inbox. Ok I know I have confused everything. I really don't care for the new format, I had the other one all figured out.

Anyway I am doing good.... blood work was good this week. Feeling ok, take shot number 7 tonight... Talk to you soon

Can't wait to hear your good news.. I am jealous...wish I was where you are in my tx....

Hi Karen,

Thanks, funny I thought of you today to.... I got a call from my TX nurse, she was very excited... my VL went from over 2million to 1020.... yes you read that right.. only been 3 weeks.. so next Friday I get another VL blood test, will be the end of the week after before I hear the words I am waiting to hear "UND"... She was very encouraged by the results this week. I am doing ok.. hubby and I had a rough spot this week. Guess no matter how supportive someone is it still is not an easy adjustment. I just don't feel well, dizzy and fatigued... blood work this week will let us know if I need rescue shot... Hope all is well with you. I can't wait to be on the other side feeling good again. Oh other then my hubby you were the first person I wanted to tell my good news...

Hi, I am doing good for now... had no reaction to the shot and have not had any to the pills so far, of course it has only been a week...not sure how it all works.... seems some people have problems from day 1... does it take awhile before you start having sx? I have been so afraid to make any plans for fear I won't feel well. I feel like I am living in the meantime... it ***** but I know it could be worst.

How are you doing?

Hi Karen, did my first shot last night. Was not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. My husband gave it to me and I really did not even feel it. I slept all night with no problems.. Feel find today, a little out of sorts but I think that has to do with waking up at 4:30 this morning and not being able to go back to sleep. The pills have not bothered me yet. I make sure to take them with food and am drinking liquids all day... time will tell how I react... like you being type 2 gives me pretty good odds of clearing the virus.. my doctor's use the word cure.. I am glad you did so well and that you are clear of the virus. Thanks I will keep you posted.

I'm so happy you've achieved SVR.  I've got 9 months to go, but have had a good early response.  Fingers stay crossed, and attitude positive for the SVR.  

My boys are Max (red) and Riley (black/tan).  They are first cousins and I got them a year apart.  I had Riley first, and he was 4 in October.  Max was 4 in April.  So funny how they are very different.  Riley is Mr. Playful, puppyish, and needs lots of attention.  Max is very soulful and thoughtful.  He must have been a monk in his former life.  They both give me so much joy, and are really helping me get through this treatment phase.

Take care, and stay healthy!

Thank you for everything!  It was so great to get your note.  I'm glad I found you all, and look forward to staying connected.  What kind of Doxies do you have?

Just a quick note to say hi! Hi Doxies...just wanted to say hi and see how you are doing?  I am so glad that you feel better after treatment.  I am seeing Dr. Befeler with the St Louis University Hospital.  From what I can tell he is pretty good. I'm happy with him so far anyway.  I had the biopsy done and I am at stage 3 so I wasn't too thrilled to hear that and being genotype 1 doesn't help either but I just have to roll with it and pray for the best.  I go to the class next week that tells about the treatment and how to do it then they will order the meds.  Hope all is well with you.

Hi, I go for the liver biospy on Monday... this whole thing sucks and really is getting me down at times. I love my life and am really having a hard time coming to grips with this. I don't know all the details yet, hopefully by the 28th.... I will get in touch....

Thanks for the encouraging words.... Can you tell me how going through treatment effected your relationship with your husband? Did you have the energy to have sex? Hope you don't mind me asking. I worry about that. I just think it will be hard enough for my husband if I do this and then if I don't have the energy to take care of his needs how hard that will be,

Just trying to adjust right now, have not told my kids 26 and 22..... want to have all the info first.

Wow that is awesome. I am just in the begining stages of this. Trying to come to grips with it. The only thing I know right now is that I tested postive for the anitbody's... I had the full panel done and will have the liver biospy's done next Monday. Guess I have to wait another 1-2 weeks to find out the results. I am pretty scared right now. I love my life and feel I finally got to a place where everything is going great. And I am dealt this blow, just a routine blood test and surprise... I have not had any systoms but the last few days I have had this ache on my left side that won't go away. I think it may be a systom but I don't know just know it is really bothering me. Any good words you can give me would be great. Thanks
