Oh my, what a story! It's a long wait for those test results too. You must have been so scared!!! Sounds like you had a good doc to explain it all to you.
My first hubby had hepatitis C and we both had the same doc so she called me in and said I had to be tested for Hep C and HIV because they run together. It was a long time ago and I was scared sh--less for 2 weeks waiting for the results. Luckily, they both came back negative. I wanted to choke him for putting me through that. I just knew with my luck they would both be positive, but they weren't. His HIV was also negative thank God. The things some people do to themselves and their loved ones. But, that's another story.
Hang in there tewcute! Wishing you good health! This forum gives me so much peace, especially from all the nice folks on here that support each other.
