Doing well!  I don't get here that often either.  Considering starting the new treatment next year.  Going to wait and hear about more results from others.  It sounds like things are going really well for you!  I'm happy to hear that!

Just a quick note to say hi! does not sound like whining to me. maybe u cant help with grief solutions but i wish u could get thru to your  son while he is young before this grim path ends him like his dad. we all know addiction is inherited. do u have family on the east coast who might reach him? your daughter will continue to grow up fast and this will likely make her more capable as an adult than one who had and easy time. what thoughts on getting help for your son?

Just a quick note to say hi! i expect u are not the right person to help with grief over your ex. im not sure in fact anyone can be much help with such a difficult time. maybe a spiritual counselor of some sort otherwise time is the best healer. my dad was an alcoholic and i had the good fortune to grow up before he died so i could see him from a different perspective. had i been 20 i probably would have been pretty angry. as it was i was actually relieved for him and the family. life is interesting huh? take care

Thank you for everything! i sure appreciate your support. it is almost hard to believe tx was only a few months ago. it feels like another life time. tomorrow i go see doc polio who is an absolute peach. all i have to report is a skinned knee and elbow from falling off my bike today! i feel terrific aside from that and am so grateful to be one of the lucky ones. i expect today was hard on your children being pops day. healing is a long process. i hope u are well and happy. hugs, babs

Just a quick note to say hi! yes i believe we traveled in some of the same circles of foodies! we still have some pretty good restaurants but since i retired i dont frequent any but the inexpensive asian ones. everything in this state is so expensive but i just cant see moving with all my connections here. my niece, her fiance and my nephew and family are all in salt lake. it is lovely there and does tempt me a bit. that dear nell is growing so fast i worry that i will miss the good stuff. life is full of interesting choices isnt it?
murari is hoping to treat sooner rather than later but the funds are very slow. so many folks in the pinch of housing issues and economy/job loss stuff. i am not losing hope and he is not either. more soon, babs

the Vaseline worked better than anything else.  Right now I've got two prescription creams - one for the rosacea (face) and one for the hives (almost everywhere).  My scalp is now driving me crazy.  I feel like I have bugs crawling around up there.  I started using Nioxin a few weeks before I started tx as a preventative for hair loss so I hate to switch shampoos. the doctor wants me to take Zyrtec to calm down everything and it is approved in my trial but I hate taking that stuff.  I'm already spaced out enough from the tx drugs.

Thanks for the hint about using vaseline in my nose.  I have now graduated to medication-induced rosacea, non-allergic hives and some sort of eczema that doesn't look like eczema - just red hands.  So if you have any help for these, send it my way.  I am waiting to pick up the prescription for the face (rosacea) but the hives are not easily helped as I cannot stand antihistamines.  It's all pretty irritating at this point.

Just a quick note. the graduation speaker was Ramon Cortinez. 70 plus adopted mexican gent. he was an educator in mostly inner city schools all his life. he had a most inspiring message. if i can access it i will send along. hope the healing continues in your family, hugs, babs

Just a quick note to say hi!  God, that itching in my nose is awful!  I had not thought about vaseline and am trying it now.  I found some moisturizing nasal gel with aloe that works some.  Also, saline flushes are good but nothing has made it go away.  I rub and scratch until it bleeds  Thanks for the tip.

Just a quick note to say hi! i believe it is an oddly predestined thing but that does not make it easy. my patience is challenged daily. this was never my strong suit and on tx it aint better! my mum died when i was very young so it is truly an novel arena with many learning opportunities. we do love each other so everything else is just frosting...
feeling good, in spite of first mouth sores today. i also feel like a veal calf tethered to a short rope as i go out infrequently and keep eating even when it is nasty. fortunately i do not have a weight problem but i do have a waist problem in the past few months. rubber band loops to close jeans and slacks are a big help and large sweaters. take care, babs

Just a quick note to say hi! hi there; i have a god-daughter who seems to have adopted me and made me her american mum. she is from hong kong and i met her almost 5 years ago. we skype daily and she counts on me to help her thru life. she is a young 24 in grad school and recently found match and other on line dating. she has me up late at night lecturing her about date rape and hoping she is not on the city streets! it continues to be an adventure that enriches my life but i never planned to be a mum at 64! she come here on all her school holidays and seems to love my cooking and humble living style. life is strange!!

Just a quick note to say hi! amazing u could hide your treatment so well. sounds like your move west may have some positive results but it must be hard being so far. i find skype a boon and folks dont seem so far away. it is a terrific free resource. i think most of california has hartford beat but i have been here so long it is home. west hartford as u know has some good stuff. i think the school your daughter attends is a branch of what used to be connecticut culinary in suffield and i know a number of staff.as i worked for them for many years. i expect this will give her a good start in hospitality. take care, babs

Hi Kathy, I am on 2 study drugs, Protease Inhibitor and Polymerase Inhibitor and SOC, Riba and Interferon.
this is just my second week and I'm already losing track of time.  Its a grand thought to be cleared of this virus.  Trying to take it day by day and deal with the moment .    ( a monumentous task )

Just a quick note to say hi! thx for the biotene info.  i learned with my cancer chemo but the antihistimine on top of tx seems to make this worse. another question; did your hair continue to thin right to the end of tx and how long does it take to start to fill in? hope all is well in ca. the world seems to be coming apart as the disparity between rich and poor makes every one crazy! today i riba'd out at a friend and am feeling remorseful. i took her shopping / it took 30 min to get from sherman st in west hartford to stop and shop in hartford  a 8 min trip. the snow is soo high  it makes driving quite impossible. then my friend was walking at a snails pace and i was not patient when she wanted to walk around the house to avoid a little ice. ugh i hope i have some friends left after tx.

Just a quick note to say hi! hi there. the snow is wild!!! bet u dont miss it. im in the home stretch and feeling pretty good. itch has resolved from  steroid cream for 2 days! a miracle. now just the blahs, impatience, lack of appetite, dry mouth, and the usual stuff, none debilitating. my recent dilemma has been that doc has me finish treatment with last interferon and all the heppers think a week longer if smart to do riba after interferon. i questioned doc once and did not get a clear answer. now i have a call to him for clarilfication. Dr. Polio is a fabuluous doctor and u may know his local recognition in this field. i still am cynical enuf to question anything that could jeopardize my chance of slaying this dragon. i have a plan even if he does not agree. curious what u think...babs

Just a quick note to say hi! and thx. my taste buds are quite strange on tx so i have to rely on memory to cook. yesterday a chix pot pie for 8 with homemade crust. looked great but did not even tempt me. brisket too i kept adding stuff to bring up flavor and feel i overdid. i will be glad for the return of my appetite, tastebuds and patience. i appreciate your encouragement. best, babs
