I went to my Infection Disease doctor today and my titers came back zero again for the several-th time in a row and thye doctor is proclaiming me CURED of the coccidiomycosis.
He is taking me OFF the Diflucan AND the Acyclovir completely and will re-test me in 2 months to see how the titers are then and if they are still zero, will agree that I am, indeed, cured completely and only need to be re-tested once a year. The only time I need to be worried about re-occurence is if I have lung surgery or if there is a dramatic earthquake or a fire like we had before - just like the rest of the population.
I sobbed with joy at the news!
I can hardly stand with the joy of being able to see my future of life ahead of me with life. I am cured of cocci (see how I lower-case it now?) and found the thyroid issue that has already changed my life in just a week's time - 2007 is going to be the most amazing year of all.
I have new clients coming to me in droves. I am schedule to see Alaska on a paddle boat in for 12 days in September. I am down 30 pounds since starting the Topamax. Fruit continues being much more delicious than chocolate. I vow to quit using the handicap placard and use regular parking spaces unless safety is a real issue. I will ride my bike again before my birthday in March. I will find a tutor for my photography. I will get my eyes fixed so I don't have to wear glasses anymore. I will get my skin cut off so I can wear real clothes without a pannus and flapping skin.
I can see an entire life unfolding in front of me today that I couldn't see a week ago.
I am cured.
And I am alive.
I am alive!
