Okay, yes, now I understand. Sorry your dog made such a mess but it has me laughing.
Our Pyrenees was an outside dog, she didn't care for  being inside. We had to put her in the barn when my husband was going to shoot a dear. The sound of a gun was the only thing that would make her leave the property.

Thanks :) It is hard... but i'm looking at everything i can to keep her informed on her treatment and even just made calls to the pharmacy/apothecary and her docs office as well. :) good people are named Sami (or Sammy) so your mum must be a wonderful one :)

Thanks Idyllic – I guess we have a mutual admiration going, because I always really appreciate your posts too. They are always well-informed and always very caring. Let's be sure to keep in touch!

You know, I got letter in mail announcing my registry with the dept of health in Mi on my first dx. I did not know what it meant, only notifying me. This round nothing. Maybe because I am already on list?

Whew.  Glad it didn't get to 12.  Hang in there.  You're doing great.  Hgb in the 11's must feel good!

Be sure to check with your doctor Idyllic.  I think that if your hgb increases close to 12 or to 12, it is dangerous to take Procrit.  Be sure to ask about that.

I used to just ignor it as I always get it once a year and about 40 mg of pred knocks is out. I would do a 40,20,10,5 and be good to go.  Tiny spot on ankle but kept it clean and almost gone. Glad I didn't go  trapzeing through the woods like I usually do. I would be in trouble.

The only friends I have for support are on this Forum. They're better than most.
The other people I thought were friends turned out not to be.
This is a good day for me so I'm grateful for nice people like you.

Hi,
just wanted to say that I perfectly understand your wish to remove the post. I am aware of the responsability of my descisions and there's no one but me that can ake it. Seeking info to be able to take a descision is important. But with this one I know there really are no "yes" or "no". Wish you good luck with the rest of tx and thank you for being so engaged in this forum, you are very well educated about this and I am sure a lot of people here appeciate your answers. Thank you.

Just a quick note to say hi!  I couldn't find where "notes" were before, so I didn't answer yours, obviously.  They really weren't that hard to find once I really looked!  I am well--retired and looking for a supplemental job.  Trying to get used to the heat--I walked for almost two miles around noon today and was very uncomfortable.  I need to go out earlier.  How are you?

Thanks for checking in. Hubby has been very sick, just horrible.  But his VL has been at "0" twice in a row, and his Dr. says he is responding better to triple tx than any patient he's had, so he's committed to sticking it out.  He's got a nasty bout of bronchitis going on. Dr. says can't do anything for it til incivek ends in 5 weeks.  He's just very sick, weak & worn out, the bronchitis is exhausting.  Losing lots of weight, which Doc says is unusual since most people gain.  He's a picky eater anyway, and nothing tastes good to him now, so that's been hard. I'm going to search on "bronchitis" here and see if I can get any helpful suggestions, but getting him to try them might be tricky. Stubborn fella!  But, it might be "stubborn" that sees him thru this, so that's OK w/ me.

Hgb was back to 8.1 but they sounded more concerned with low hemcrit? Plats have fallen over a hundred on tx! They are now about 100. Wbc is 2.1 i believe? Im doing this all from memory. didnt ask anc.

i am resting on the couch looks like its going to be a rough night with this throat! And i slept through the whole transfusion and then sone more when i got home!

Thanks for the note-- sorry it took me a few days to respond, but I'm pretty much a novice at this whole forum thing and just realized today that I had  "note"!  I appreciate your kind words very much.  Hubby having a horrible week, and goes back in to his doc Tues. about the platelets.  The day after the platelet news, though, he did get the good news that his viral load is "0".  That picked him up a bit.  He's having on/off fever, bad cough, nausea, trouble eating, and today a new symptom--- slimy eyes.
Anyway, I'm learning a lot here, and it helps to come here and read some success stories.  It provides a light at the end of what is a very long tunnel.  Thanks again.

Just a quick note to say hi!  Only 9 more days of school (and I will be off two of them) and then I am done facing rude, disrespectful 9th graders.  The forecast is for some hot weather all summer, but I would rather be hot than cold.  Growing up along the shores of Lake Erie, I saw enough cold and snow to last forever.  I won't even consider vacation anywhere where I would have to wear a jacket or see snow.  Will be off for a week of vacation in Charleston, SC, then in July will be seeing my new dr., the hepatologist.  I have gathered my records and am prepared. Hey, have a good holiday weekend!  I will be going to a picnic on Memorial Day.

Thanks Idyllic I did go through so much alone, I was afraid I would be treated like a leper. I am getting better about talking to people and would like to start a hep c support group. Thanks again for the hug I needed it, God Bless You!

Hey idyllic just saw your comment:) I didn't notice the procrit because it was a one time thing right after a transfusion...it really needed to be continued for me to feel anything from it. It does take a couple of weeks normally and should slowly rise your Hgb. I would think you would be feeling better when you get to 10-10.5 (cpmpared to where you've been!) Good luck hun!
