2012_02_13 Il est fait!

It is done.

Friday, February 3rd, I took my last dose of HepC medication. Once again, blood tests show I am Negative for a viral load. :) I never dreamed I would go through treatment, successfully, and do it in just 24 weeks (the standard is 48 weeks). I had someone call me out for referring to my healing as a miracle, since I was cured by medicine. But you'd have to look at the big picture. Everything fell into place perfectly bit by bit, the steps were indeed ordained by God. Nothing can make me feel otherwise. I know. I walked it.

Since finishing, my energy level has gotten so much better. I've only felt woozie upon standing once or twice. And Friday I was able to walk up a flight of stairs. Well, considering the building, more like 2 flights. I was a little winded, heart pounding a little, but I recovered quickly. For the most part, my taste has returned to normal. Chocolate and baked goods are still not quite right. And I finally learned to stop eating something when it tastes wrong. It's okay to throw it away if I am not enjoying it. I have lost 10 pounds since Christmas. I'm not compelled to eat as I was in the past. I don't think that's related to the medicine. I'm just not thinking about food much anymore. There are too many other things to occupy my time. God has not only healed me physically, He's fixing my heart too. This experience has shown me how very blessed we are, and how much we can help other hurting people. We are blessed to be a blessing to others.
