All I ever wanted to know about...

Hepatitis C and was afraid to ask...

Further blood work should confirm what the doctor suspects (he thought Ron had Hep C two years ago when he saw him in July 2010) and unless it's "chronic" then we'll just play the waiting game and see. Ron did have an ultrasound of his liver in February, which was clear. So, it doesn't appear that he's sustained any liver damage (up to that point, at least). But, that has been almost a full year ago (hard to imagine that 2010 is nearly over).

I just don't know what to do any more. I think we're going to move into a retirement village. He's not certain he wants to do that (wants to stay closer to his doctors) but since I'm the person driving, it really isn't an issue for me. I want to be somewhere that I don't have to worry about the house maintenance, the yard, watering the lawn, snow/ice removal, etc. I don't know for sure; we'll have to lay out all the pros and cons of moving. I just know that I cannot continue on this path without relief. If not, then I don't have a clue about anything.

Not like I had a clue anyway, but I'm really clueless now.

Don't know what to say except to pray for you all.

That sounds like a good idea - hopefully you'd be able to sell your house easily.

I think you are making a wise decision by moving. You have far too many things to concentrate on besides house maintenance etc. I am sorry to learn of the possible Hepatitis C diagnosis. It seems unimaginable all these things that keep heaping up and piling on for you and Ron.

I am by no means in a position to give anybody advice, but the moving sounds like a good idea. It may rid a lot of stress.

I am thinking of you, sending good thoughts. You need some help with all that is on your plate.

I am so sad to hear this, but I am glad you have options of places to live to make life easier. Still praying for you.

Teresa, I know it's not for me to say, but I do think the move would be a good idea in the circumstances. Hopefully, it would take a lot of the "small stuff" off your shoulders. How you are coping with it all, I just can't imagine. Please take care.
