I received this letter in the mail from my doctor’s office. I am now free of the Hep C virus! To be sure, they will test me again in August.
I have to admit that when I read this letter I cried. It is a great relief, more so than I would have thought before reading the letter.
I am overjoyed and relieved, but honestly other thoughts came to mind. A friend of mine recently lost his only son and I have to wonder why? Why did he lose his son and I get another chance? Who gets to decide that? This kid who was loved by so many people is gone and I don’t even have any family to call and say “Hey, I get to live!” because they just don’t care. And so, as happy as I am for myself, I have to wonder how it all makes sense. I don’t think it does.
