Power of Prayer

Jul 20, 2012 - 8 comments

My last entry on here was when I had to stop treatment because my liver could no longer tolerate Ribavirin. I pretty much went crazy talking out of my head, unable to sleep, throwing up and diarrhea. I had to be hospitalized for several days with both white & red blood counts about as low as they get before a transfusion.
Well, all of that was back in March & since the medicines got out of my body I have done increasingly better! In Nov. 2011 my MELD score was 17 - I found out a couple of weeks ago that I am now down to 10! and the best part of it all is that I feel better than I have in at least 10 years!!! I have a garden and am constantly working around the house and yard.
After I had put so much hope in the treatment and it failed, I told the Lord that now it was up to Him to do with me whatever He wished. I have had many prayer warriors praying for me for some time now. When I got those most recent blood results back I asked them if this drop was something they saw very often and was told that it rarely happens to this degree. I will be seeing my liver doctor in a few weeks so I'm anxious to hear what he has to say.
God bless each of you. Hang in Therese because feeling good again is a wonderful thing!

Sounds good to me. Treatment and experiment with different therapies if you have had Hep C since the 70's may do more harm than good. Hope you get a good report on your next blood work

Hi George,
So good to hear from you.  Glad to hear you're feeling well and have recovered from your last treatment.  I will pray that triple tx gave your liver a break from Hep C and helped improve your liver function.  Stay healthy and happy.  Let us know what your hepatologist says.

Amen, Amen!!  Your system kicked RIBA's butt out the door in a big way.  To feel better than you have in 10 years is breathtaking.  Maybe the meds killed off some other toxins in your system.  I am not on the forum much these days but was so happy to hear your good news.

Be blessed!
