thanks for your reply. I think the gray area is because of my age and the low stage, that I could outlive the progression and whether or not to treat is not that clear cut. It was the Nurse Practitioner that said that. No, have never had tx. Thanks again.

Thank you for your response Idyllic...I can always count on your positivity that's for sure :)
My nerves have been frazzled lately...I can't stop thinking about a breakthrough or relapse. I know all the stats and I know SVR outweighs the bad...but it is still heavy.
So when I see negativity around me I have to step back. I am in no condition to see the good through the bad right now. Just need to get my cheerful, carefree self back!
Thank you for being such a gem on the forum.   Youre one of the shining lights and always full of support:)

I feel way older then 29 way older I just noticed that that saying is ridiculously how the held would I know what way older then 29 feels like. Um ok sorry about that I tend to rattle on. So hi. I could have sworn we were already friends but I guess not, maybe under my old name. Or maybe its the fog surrounding my brain

Just an afterthought.. Hot here, too. I am in Arkansas. How are you doing with the staying out of the sun thing? It's killing me!!!! Sure is a good trade off to not get sunburn, but I sure do miss it! LOL

might want to check out PetEdge.com. I just had to replace my dryer of 10 years. I replaced it with the same kind. It ran $184.99. Pricey, but not unreasonable. There is a dryer in there for $99.95. Would make your job a lot easier to blow all that loose stuff off before bathing. Your pictures of them look great. I can tell they are well taken care of, and I know how much work you have ahead of you. Went to the new health food store in town yesterday, and was able to pick up the rest of my stuff to make the tea with. Gonna brew some up this weekend. Shot 2 was successful. Still feeling good. Just way fatigued. Now, I'm working on getting the blood work done here in town. Thanks for all your support. It really means so much to me!

Sure hope you have, or have access to a power dryer. It cuts your work load in half being able to blast that winter coat loose. still, wish I was there to help you. It's so expensive, good for you for being able to do the work yourself!! Hope your back holds up. Can you put them on a picnic table or something so you don't have to bend so much? Any little tricks I can think of, I will let you know. If you don't have a dog dryer, I know a couple places that sell reconditioned ones, with factory waranties. Good luck, girlfriend.

I wish I was there to do your dogs for you!!!!!!!!! That is soo much work, I know just what you're talking about. I just groom for very close friends and family. My hands took a crap a couple years ago, along with my back, etc,etc. I have a cocker, a cavalier spaniel, and a ridgeback mix. They all know something's up. Thank God for my son, and all the good advice I'm getting. Think brain fog is gonna be a problem. Will start taking notes on what I think isn't quite right. Could end up ;ike War and Peace. Good luck with your puppies. Is there any groomer or grooming school around that might help you out because of your circumstances? I really suggest tryin to find a school. Brushing, blowing coat, and bathing are the first things taught. Good luck. Keep in touch, ok?

Thanks for the status comment...I CAN'T WAIT TO BE OFF INCIVEK!! Eating these fats have been really rough for me! :( I am hoping the stomach issues get better (nausea etc.) As well.
I know it's still not gonna be fun with peg/riba but I really feel like the shot is nothing compared to what Inc has put me through. I have actually tolerated that quite well I think.
So how are you doing? Are you feeling any better than you were the other day? I'm cheering for you!!! Better believe I will be checking on you each and every one of those 48 weeks! ;p
Have a wonderful evening!
Laura :)

Just a quick note to say hi! and to tell you we all need encouragement and a positive attitude can do wonders. I find its my only strength besides God right now because Im not currently on any meds except my lactulose.Waiting to seems to be the worst part of it all. have new labs coming back and they arent back yet! makes me worry somewhat that they have found something else...but its all in Gods hands anyways. Bless ya and have a great weekend!

Hi There...How very kind of you....Just got back a bit ago WITH my meds and just took my shot...WHEW!!!!! I still do not know the viral load number as it has not come through the system. What a flipin story (I know there are plenty of stories on this site,) Anyway, am suppose to hear from from docs office in the morning. I have an accupuncture appointment at that time as well so it may take until lunch...Oh....the drama. Crazy day. I sat in my car at the pharmacy parking garage to wait for the call from my doc at 3:45 this afternoon to get the load number and see if I qualified to have her release the meds...No number but she released them anyway...More to be revealed. I am totally grateful for your note to me. TOTALLY...Thank you

Hi, It is fine to insert links to my posts. I actually have done it myself (links to other threads or posts by other people). I should write up a generic post and keep it on Word because I do try to be thorough but sometimes I forget some details. Plus, it would save me alot of time, lol. By the way, thanks for the complement.

I liked your hair comment. Getting more self conscious about my looks at the moment.
