Iron Man, Meet Iron Woman :)
We got the call yesterday with the results of the biopsy. Her iron count is 5,700. She will start a new medication shortly to reduce the amount of iron in her liver. It may take up to a year to see it back to normal. Jesse is not looking forward to a new medication. This one dissolves in juice, (must have a bad taste) and she drinks it when she gets up. The side affects are vomiting and nausea, oh joy what a wonderful way to start the day :)
Jesse is really looking forward to traveling alone to Eugene, Or. She will arrive back home June 6th, just in time for an Echo and blood draw.
