It’s April Fools Day, and it’s the day I call my nurse about my 24-week viral count. Maybe it’s not the right day to do it. Could the virus have fooled me? Will I learn that my gold-plated treatment with sofosbuvir and simeprevir was really worth less than a penny? There are no pennies circulated in Canada anymore, so the result could be worse than the worst for me.
But April Fools can also bring luck. The weather network predicted rain, but I see sunny skies outside my window. I’m crossing my fingers and will be making that call. Life moves ahead, no matter what you do. The best thing to do is to take charge–even if it’s only through a phone call.
