July 2011

Hi. Heres an update on Robbi, hope I don't leave anything out:

Robbi has been doing very well with her Interferon and ribavirin therapy. Pills everyday plus injection once a week. Leaves her sick for about 2 days afterwards. But her viral load is going down and thats what we want. Treatment is working!

In June Robbi was in hosp for a week (Hopkins) due to her huge abdomen and pain. They started
talking about one thing then changed their minds and then discharged her, having done nothing. Oh well. She feels better now but has a huge abdomen and a really ugly hernia.
Also she had all her hair cut off cos it was falling out (from treatment)., but it looks GREAT short too.

So currently shes enjoying summer w/ her kids, and doing her treatment. She has lost so much weight she looks anorexic. Thanks everybody for keeping her in your thoughts and prayers.
Sept 16 is her 1 year mark. Pics to follow....
