Hepatitis C: Been A Long Time Leaving But’ll Be A Long Time Gone

My dad was a Waylon Jennings man.  I think he liked the big FU that Waylon projected.  I paraphrase Waylon.  “I been a long time leaving Hepatitis C, but I’ll be a long time gone”

So after three years of treatment-plus the maybe five years of falling apart, I get a voice mail that says “Hi Deb, this is the message you’ve been waiting for.  Still no detectable virus, so you’re cured.  See you in 24 weeks”.  Glad I go back in 24 weeks, so I can ween myself off of the Texas Medical Center.  This follow-up lasts a couple of years.  Now what?  I don’t care.  Today I am neither a patient nor a scientist.

Yep, I’m doing this in Kerala

I can do anything I want.  I will start with a trip to India this week. No shit.  BTW I tried to say this without the word shit, but it didn’t sound like me.  Waylon and India.  That’s all I got to say for now.
