I received a call from the nurse, she told me to sit down (which of course scared the heck out of me) I sat down right in the hallway.  She then said, we got your 4 week blood draw back and you are UND
UND!! for me!  The doctor had said that it would be very hard to treat my HCV cause I have had this a long time and I am a 2/4..  I did not want to use a thread to post as I know there is a limit and someone else may need the thread more than I.
I first told the nurse that I loved her, then I cried, then I thanked God, I can not believe it is working for me.   I am beside myself with happiness.  I was going to thank each and every person who has supported me, comforted me, advised me.  I did not get to everyone before I ran out of energy so thought I would do it this way.  My Hemoglob is low so am having problems even typing, who knew?
I am waiting now for my new blood work to get to the doc to see if I need any rescue drugs.  I hope my body can improve on its own.  So while I feel horrible, just had shot day,everytime I start to have a pity party, I remind myself UND Dee, you are UND  The nurse said this is the miracle of modern medicine
Thank God, thank all of you for being there.  MH is the best especially for people who don't have the support of family like you would see in a movie or TV :)
Bless everyone

Dee Dee Dee! You are going to be an inspiration for alot of people. Not only newly dx'ed but those that TX'ed before without success! I couldn't be happier for you. To use an old cliche (ms) "Today is the first day of the rest of your life!"
Nice, very nice to hear happy news!

Oh, Dee, that's WONDERFUL news!! I know you must have been terrified for the few seconds when the nurse told you to sit down, before she told you the good news... you must have been jumping up and down afterwards! Well, at least in your mind, anyway, the hemoglobin is probably making jumping a bit of a challenge, but I'm jumping up and down for you... :) congratulations!
Definitely a boost, isn't it? Makes all the toil and trouble worth it... you should feel excited and proud through the pain... I'm so very happy for you!  Thanks for sharing your good news... made my day :).
Lots of love and hugs from CT :). ~eureka

Mazel Tov!  It is thrilling isn't it?  I also had feelings of disbelief in getting UND because of diabetes, thyroid problems etc.  I thought it would never work on me.  But something did . . . proving it can be done.  Your body was just waiting around for the right drug and she found it.  Best wishes for SVR.

To all of you, your notes brought tears to my eyes and made me realize I am not alone in this terrible fight.  I have diabetes and am 2/4, have thyroid problems and am 55 so I did not think I had a chance to beat this. On the bright side I am female and ok weight, ha ha.    I have gotten to UND through the help of all of you.  I still feel awful, my hemo is still low, I get out of breath walking down my hall, but the doc says I am stable so that is good
Thank you, all of you for your kind words.  This virus is terrible and very isolating, especially when there is so much stigma attached.  I am feeling breathless (Friday night shot night) so will close for now but I love you all and I wish you all UND.  The fight is hard but so rewarding.  My nurse called it the miracle of modern medicine

Hello everyone!  I wanted to say thank you for each and every comment.  Each comment has touched my heart and brought me joy.  Thank you all so very much.  There are days I do get blue and think about how many more weeks I have to go but then, as my nurse says, I say UND
My biggest fear is that I did this before, was UND by the 8th week and relapsed 6 weeks after stopping tx. But (BIG BUT) I did not have my diabetes under control and I had thyriod problems like  Curious Lady and in 2008 no one seemed to know there was any connection

Thank each and every one of you for lifting me up and helping me through.  I make no mistake when I say that you all are saving my lives.  You are my new family
Thank you
