On December 31, 2014 at 4:30pm, we got word that John was APPROVED for the HVC medication by our medical insurance company. The approval covers Harvoni, the newly approved combo pill used to treat hep C. This will be 12 weeks of treatment, which will potentially cure John of the virus.
This is some awesome news.
John will be the only patient (anywhere ever) to use this medication while on dialysis, so it will certainly take some tweaking and monitoring to get the dosage correct. Also not sure about side effects and the potential need for a second course of treatment...but we'll handle those if they come up.
We are thrilled to be starting 2015 with this news! Feeling lighter and even more hopeful...
Some details on Harvoni:
Much love to you all. xo
