On Thursday, I brought Renee for her week 1 treatment meeting, where we were able to discuss symptoms etc that arose over the week.  It was a bittersweet day because while Renee's symptoms are generally what is expected, the NP said the symptoms could improve or worsen.  Also, Thursday was the day that Renee went back to her house, and it'll be about 1.5 weeks until we can see each other again.  That's hard because I want so much to be there physically for Renee as she's on treatment, but I know that being there for her emotionally is just as important. 

Anyway, we were reminiscing about a song that Renee sang along with a few weeks after we first met called "Just the Way You Are" by Bruno Mars.  It's a great song, and we both feel very strongly about the message.  As best as I could while driving, I turned to her and said there were only two things I would change about her.  We've been together six months and she groaned about what it would be.  I told her that I wished her symptoms would go away and that the treatment can lead to SVR for her...that was all I would change.  I really hope that these can be achieved, but I told her either way, I'm here.

I've tried really hard to be the cheerleader and coach so to speak.  I keep reminding Renee to stay positive about her outcome, after all, she's CC and has the highest chances of attaining SVR.  However, it isn't always easy for me to do so.  There are times where doubts and fear start to creep in.  I don't like it.  I want to be the optimist.  It is hard seeing Renee hurt and have fever and chills at the same time.  I keep hoping that it will all be worth it and that she'll attain SVR.  I just wish I could get that little nagging voice that sometimes crops up out of my head in order to really be there for her and to encourage Renee all the time.  Regardless of what happens treatment wise, I really will love Renee "Just the Way [She] Is" but I hope that my two wishes for change can really occur.
