One word I heard this morning at 11:52 April 1 moved me to Tears of Joy

 

" Undetected "

 

I just received a phone call from my Abbott Truquoise II Trial Study Nurse contact with my week 5-6 Lab results when she said those coveted words.

 

I was traveling with my wife of 33 years and we stopped at one of those super gas / quick mart and departed to the restrooms. Immediately following the phone call I found my wife by the coffee dispensers and tried to tell her the news but my voice and emotions overtook me and I broke-down and mumbled that I received some important news then I said bearly understandable "I'm undetectable"  she said  "what's wrong what's wrong did someone die"  then I said crying  "no! no! someone lived! someone lived! "  she said "what?" I said I received my VL report it said undetectable then we embraced.   ( sorry for the drama, but this is a life changing moment for me had to write it down)

 

This test result is yet but another hurdle that all of us Hep C brothers and sisters hope to reach. My my case I figure its my 6th major hurdle, with the 1st being getting over the initial shock of having HCV and so on ...

 

I realized that this is a important milestone to reach,  but I have to have many more months of successive Lab results that read "undetected" before I can fully feel secure about the prospect of SVR.  But for today its time to feel good about it.

 

Its amazing that a couple of teaspoons of blood plasma can be used to get a reliable viral reading out of 10 pints of blood that flow in the human body.  But I guess we should not be surprised because these are the same type of scientists that have invented theses new all oral Meds that can reduce (in my case) viral loads from over 6,000,000 to under 200 in only one weeks time. In my clinical study which is for only cirrhotic patients its even more impressive.

 

Thanks to all of members of the forum for your loving and fulfilling encouragement, and I thanks the most high God, who's name is "Jehovah"

 

Matt
