Yup Rick,

I had a funny feeling you would be nothing but busy! And working hard. Another really nice pic of your girls BTW. So, you lost 12 lbs for all the exertion eh. Hm, well, as long as you are hanging in there OK with not too many ill-effects. Seems a bit much to me, heat, that much work, a lot of "physical" on top of your Zep, but you seem extremely tough, resilient and motivated mister! Just hoped you might have had a less stenuous, perhaps cushy A/C car mode of travel by now, oh well - I know that is coming in the near future and we will consider that a reward then. 

Did you ever get your doc's office to provide you with all your lab test results - if you could share them, I am sure we would all be riveted! Might be hard to get, for a guy that has no spare time, let alone to sleep and eat.

I do hope you are trying hard to get enough sleep, and are eating and drinking well. Do you have a garden (in that pic)? : ) C.

Hello All ,

              Sorry so long been really busy at work ! I just want to say thanks to everyone help and kind words along the way ! I am a big " ZERO " and loving it LOL . I have been feeling pretty good the whole way through but tired . Now that my V.L. IS Zero I feel less worried but I still have 27 pills to take and they are making me feel more and more tired I am not sure why but I will take them all ! I still am working 50-60 hours a week lots of over time at Trader Joe's warehouse and Riding about 10 miles a day on my bike " Lost 12 pounds " Sweet !!! I am reading some of the post's of some of the others and I am seeing many great stories of healing this makes very happy seems like these new drugs are on the mark !!!! I am a little worried about the F4 read on my liver the doctor said that it has not gotten worse , But said we need to keep an eye on it and pray for no Liver Cancer ! I know that each Case/Person is different but for the ones that are just starting Zepatier . As far as my last 61 days on the Med's really no side effects that I noticed just tired but I always work . Like TIG and Canuck said drink lots of water thanks guys and thanks to all of you for just being there ! So glad that I found this sight and All of you kind people !!!

 

                                                                                                                                                                   Rick and Family !!!! Thank you !!!

YEE-HAAAAAW!!!!!!! is right Rick.

Hey where'dya go? Wondered how your battle was going, the waging and warring! VERY, VERY well we see.

We are all SO pleased for you!

Nit-pickin' here (semantics) ... you are NOT a NON -responder, oh contraire my successful man,  YOU have responded beaut -full-y! Rather ... (as opposed to being a non-responder), YOU are UN-DETECTED!!!!!!!!! Waaaay, waaaay better!

How goes the working war go? Still biking to work, or are you back with 4 wheels again? I hope you have not beeing feeling too badly through treatment. Really happy you have beat this virus, and you and your lovely family will never have to deal with the harms this virus causes us, ever again!

More good news will be coming for you (in a month) at EOT, another UND in store for you. Expect more UND's at EOT+12 weeks and EOT+24 weeks. 

Fill us in on how things have been for you - it's wonderful news. C.
