I would have to echo all the responses here. My medical support team is superb, and who can forget Dr.Druker ...he is someone we will long remember and of course, all the supportive people on this board whom we have come to rely on for wisdom, experience and humor ! Thanks to all of you !

PCRU 4/2013 through 3/2015. (Reduced to 150 mg 7/2014)
