...there's a rainbow in the sky.
Hello there. Again I must apologize for the long lapse. Work has been a big part of this and laziness I suppose. I come home tired and do other things. I guess we all prioritize are time differently.
I have news I wanted to share and I get emails asking how I'm doing. I thought it was probably time to write a quick post.
I have two things important in my life that are happening these days. The first is that my transplant clinic is going to try treating my Hep-C with one of the new drugs that was approved this year. The drug is called Sofosbuvir and it has a 90% cure rate. We are still a ways out on this and have to see what happens with my insurance. My clinic is also exploring another avenue with a clinic trial using another regimen of drugs. It too looks promising.
We are excited about this and have been waiting for the past year for some of these new drugs that are just now coming out. Keep your fingers crossed.
The second thing is unbelievable and amazing. I've touched on this subject before, so some of you may be familiar with what I'm about to say. After years of searching for my birth parents for many years, I was contacted by a cousin last week. This past week has been very emotional and overwhelming. It is hard to describe. Everything that has transpired has been incredible. And fast.
Steps that we have taken in the past couple of months have made this possible, and while I'm not going to go into detail right now, these steps have led up to this. This dream and long time yearning has put me in a place that I thought I'd never see.
We are talking back and forth through emails right now with my cousin, and I have learned that my mom is still alive, but we are taking baby steps; all of us treading thru unfamiliar territory. This week my cousins husband is coming here for a conference and we are going to get together and share information. We have no idea what the future will bring us, but just knowing I have family has lifted a weight off my heart. I may never meet my mom, or my siblings, and I'm alright with that. I'm just going to see what comes our way. Right now it's just one day at a time.
I can't begin to thank so many of you who have been by my side over the past few years. Bless you all. And I hope everyone is doing well.
