LOL Beth...yes, seems like a fair trade. You could have your big toe replace your thumb, so not all is lost.
My liver disease is related to UC/autoimmune. It's primary sclerosing cholangitis visually on the MRCP, but blood testing leans more toward primary biliary chirrosis. I don't know if one can have both, but the med of choice for both is URSO. No cure, it's fatal, but not terminal..hmmm.
I hope the weekend goes well for you..
