Hi, I dont remember if I ever met you, but i am Blue and I also live in Florida about an hour or so from West Palm. I have Hepititis c and cirrossis. How are you?
I just wanted to thank you for your inciteful response. It seems some people just want to be right for better or worse. I'm not going to do anything rash, just reviewing my options. Thanks again. Garry
Hi. Just read the post you wrote in the thread on who to tell. "I don't even tell myself." LOL!! Thanks. I needed the laugh, especially today. Best to you :)

Just a quick note to say hi!
Just a quick note to say hi! i dont want to sugar coat but i miss my sweetie! how u been?
Hi, Guy: You had mentioned earlier that teleprivir has not been as successful with G3 retreat as boceprvir. I cannot find confirming information on this. Is there a link you can send me? Now, hubby's dr thinks he will wait until PI is SOC. Hubby not terribly happy..was hoping to get the show started. Anyway, I'd appreciate some info on the different responses to the 2 current PI's,. Pls advise & many thx in advance.
Just a quick note to say hi! Hi FL Guy< I wish if you could tell me, how did you get rid of that high viral load in just two weeks. I am geno 1, but anyway. Thanks in advance!
Thank you F! guy for all your responses, my parnter and I are new to treatment and I much appreciated your imput. I see you are genotype 3 as well - but did treatment 2x. Was there any reason that the MD''s know that it didn't work the first time but did the second. My partners hepatolgoist seems to be good, we live in Canada so when it comes to access and cost its really not an issue - a luxury I realize. My partner is gnotype 3 150 interferon and 1200 ribavirin, undected at week 2 treatment for 24 weeks so I hope it works. Thanks again your support has been great.
Hahaha... that was ingenious!
You are sooooo funny! Thanks for a great chuckle with your pro and con lists.
I followed your advice re labtestsonline - it's an excellent site, and it taught me a lot. I'm gradually getting familiar with the jargon as well as this community. I'll have the RIBA and RNA results in exactly one month from today! Hope the USA does not adopt a UK style health system!! You would not like it.
I feel loads calmer now that I understand so much more. All I need is patience. Inge153
Omg... now we have a sungazer telling us to bake in the sun during tx. What has become of the world? ... lol ...
Thank you my friend.
One of my family physician told me when a patient has Oesaphagael Verix 2-3 with Portal hypertension indicates that he must have Liver cirrhosis.
I asked my hepatologist to make sure that & he agreed.
My therapy was finished on january 2009.
Would you please clarify about your confusion on my post.
You are so right that "done" is a great feeling!
Hi , that was a great comment about how life precedes tx. It's a good reminder that time is passing while on tx. You still have to live your life regardless... :) -Libby
Thank you for everything! Thanks for all the things you advised me before and during my tx. I just wanted you to know that " The risk and reward theory" stayed with me for everty second thru the 55 weeks.
I thank you for all you positivity and your wit!
I will never forget it.
I was pretty calm about starting tx , however you made my ride much easier with all your comments.
Especially the one not to get a thermometer in the beginning!! LOL
What a joke that was!
You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today. I find your sense of humor so delightful and up-lifting. Did you go to school to learn such wit? or were you born with it? Do you grow oranges for a living or pick them? I like mine hand squeezed, by the way and found that Floridians know how to do that best.
Hey Fl guy -- just read your comment dated 3/15 about my not coming out to play until after 4/15. I guess that's about right since I just saw your post today! I am alive and well and my goals for this weekend were to do nothing that had a time factor. I finished a 1000 pc puzzle that I have been doing all winter and may finish Alaska by James Mitchner today (another 6 month project) but no deadlines. I feel good!
Have fun at jury duty tomorrow! It should make for an interesting day ...
Just a quick note to say hi! Thanks alot!
Wanted to thank you for all your support and being so funny and clever all thru my 55 weeks!
You were the one who told me NOT to get a thermometer at the beginning of tx! (LOL)
And the risk and reward theory! I kept that in my brain EVERY DAY!! (YOU WERE RIGHT) Not out of the woods yet but Im HOPEFUL NOW!!
Very witty, Thanks, I'm going for it all!
Just a quick note to say hi! I am hooked on Ambien CR and wake up with severe feet pain. I think it's withdrawal nerve pain. If I nap during the day my hands and feet hurt - nerve/withdrwl from Ambien. I'm trying to get off Ambien CR by slowly decreasinf amts over a long time period.
Just a quick note to say hi!...I got a good chuckle of of your ETCH-A- SKETCH & DEVINEING ROD....thanks
Just a quick note to say hi! I apologize for not getting back sooner, thanks for your reply.I asked my brother if it was ok to give out his info, he said it was OK and he will make a post tonite. His nickname is tonybuck unfortunatly he relasped after treatment. Roy
Looks like a great spot. I lived for 10 years in SE Asia and there is something about tropical sailing that makes it and the environment quite wonderful. All going well I expect to take a year or two out and sail to NZ and back. The boat is ready along with my mind but the body is currently dealing with a small technical problem and several chemical interventions. But only 36 weeks to go!
thanks for your comments regarding commitment and going for the full package. I can now really understand that the shortcut that I had initially envisaged 12 weeks ago, was a bad idea based on inadequate information. BTW, as a sailor I quite like your icon! Many thanks again for the encouragement and I hope that everything is headed in the right direction for you too.
