Sep 18, 2011 - 1 comments

Well, it has been an interesting couple of weeks.  Im very very tired  and weak.  My Red blood cells and white boold cells have dropped, Im doing blood work twice a week. Im currently taking interferon, incivek, and riba.  We cut the riba dose to only once a day to try n get my blood cell count back up.  This did not work. I have been undetectable for the virus after week 4, so they dont want to back off anymore meds yet.  I started a new shot "Procrit" twice a week to get those blood cells back up again.  I know this is why I feel so short of breath, and I hear my heart beat in my  Im pushing thru tho.  Im still making it.  I have really been tying to give this struggle to the LORD. I feel very blessed to have these meds working so far.  four more weeks and I can be done with the INCIVEK. I need ur prayers.  Im trying to be strong. Some days are great! Then, some days arent so great. I never really know what kind of day it will be. It could be alot worse, and I know that this wont go on forever.  This too shall pass. Thank you  all for your support!! For  those going thru this time in your lives, MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU!

Hi Mimi!  Mercy.  I hope you are keeping hydrated every day.  Glad you are keeping your doctors informed so they can help.  I will say a prayer for you.  I know what you mean about the struggle.  But we know the battle is not's the Lord's.  

Nahum 1:7......The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble.  He cares for those who trust in him.

Psalm 18:28.....You, O Lord keep my lamp burning; My God turns my darkness into light.

John 16:33....."I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.  In this world, you will have trouble.  But take heart!  I have overcome the world."
