    I just wanted to say I've been following this forum for the last 9 months.  I've cried while reading how horrible this disease can be!!  What I've read has helped me deal with Dennis's disease and how I can help him.  My husband skipped all of the first stages and went right to the Stage 4.  Since then it's been a whirlwind of emotions and doctors appointments.  He did the 1 month of Interferon and now is on the 11 months of shots at home.  He has a phobia of needles so it has been pretty hard on him.

    Our doctors don't tell us much so what I've learned off this site helps me ask the questions that need to be asked. 

    I'm hoping and praying for each and everyone of you!!

    Have a Merry Christmas!!

      Well Christie, I hope you and yours have a Merry and Blessed Christmas also.  Yes this disease can be very very scary indeed, but it has always been a roller coaster, and one we just get used to the ups and downs, and we tend to try to pull each other up when we need it.

       

      Keep the faith.
