I went to my Dr. in Pittsburgh, at the Center for Liver Disease on last Wed. He congratulated me on my weight loss. With the weight loss and the medication I am taking, my liver enzymes are beginning to come down. When the enzymes become normal; the Cirrhosis will stabilize; or progress at a much slower rate as long as I keep them down. I am still believing God for my healing. He did some more blood work and wants to see me again in 6 months. That is great, I have been there for tests or appointments once a month since Sept. I had not seen him since Nov. He said, "I want to see you again in 6 months. 26 weeks x 2 lbs of weight loss per week" ... (I interrupted him and said, "That is 52 lbs.") He just smiled. I am going to try to meet his expectations. That would put me at 155. I haven't weighed that in many years. Any weight loss is a push in the right direction even if you don't have medical problems.
