I have been having my physical challenges lately - feeling a lot like I felt when I first got ill - before my diagnosis. This includes extreme fatigue, adrenaline rushes that make me feel suddenly anxious, fevers and sweats and body aches with overall malaise. It's been about 10 consecutive days now, but I did have a better day yesterday and hoped that was the end of it, but it wasn't. I woke up at 4a.m. drenched in sweat and with horrible body aches. So...I went to the doctor today (I made an appointment last week).

This is not good news: My doctor checked me for many things to make sure that he isn't missing something (such as pneumonia) but he is pretty confident that my disease has progressed and my liver is failing. I could put pretty words to it, but this is the beginning of the end. Liver fails = transplant or die. I can't give a time frame; Only God knows, but it's doubtful to be imminent; yet the news is hard to hear. My husband and I cried all the way home. It's going to happen. I just don't want to suffer much, so please send your prayers and thoughts. I would greatly appreciate it.
