Day 22, CBC Labs Are In

I just came from my 2 week follow up doctor appointment since starting the new HCV liver therapy on Sovaldi and Ribavirin. It is usually a little nerve wrecking sitting in the waiting room all by yourself for the doctor to come in. For me, I've been a magnet for bad luck, bad news and not the best lab work in the world. But in that moment of self doubt, I clasped my hands together, closed my eyes and prayed. I told God, "This is your vessel, your story, you glory and your testimony. Use it God for your kingdom, I am yours." I had a sense of calm come over me, and from then on, I was relaxed and easy going. When I say I was used to bad news, it became somewhat of a routine at my old hospital in Kentucky that my lab work, liver functions and vitals were like riding a roller coaster at Cedar Point. I became jaded and accepting of having abnormal labs, so that's the mentality I am coming from. Believe me, it haunts me every once in a while, but I don't let it get the best of me. Greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world.

The results are in, and my labs look pretty great. Normal liver function, WBC and Platelets are all normal as well. Pretty astounding how well I am tolerating the treatment this time around as opposed to the last time. Click the image to the left to view the larger scale version in detail. Pretty amazing how well my functions are doing on treatment, and to me, is the standard in which I am now accustomed to receiving, because honestly, that's how my BOSS (God) works and delivers. What more proof does anyone need that we serve an awesome God? I am walking in victory today folks, even though my head is a little foggy and aching, I walk in boldness.

My doctor also informed me that she is expecting me to be fully undetected by week 4. I have the lab sheet here in my hand for next week's "BIG ONE." Next week's labs will show of I'm undetected and if the HepC virus is gone for good, and when it comes back that I am, and I am already in that mentality, than my dragon is pretty much slayed, chopped up into little bitty chunks and thrown into the fire. I go on the 18th to do labs, and then follow up doctor visit on the 25th get the results and check-up. I'm not praying for the cure, I'm praying for the will of God to thrive in my soul and bones.
