Flag girl continued......

Thought I would add a few pictures of the job yesterday just because I find it so interesting and thought someone else might as well.

This would be me flagging down the end of the road.

The Takeuchi digging the old tree stumps out.

The guys getting ready to unload and place the new trees.

This last picture is me in front of the finished job.

Dear Elizabeth,
I have been reading your journal for a few weeks now with great interest. I am a hep C sufferer from the UK. Finished a 48 wk course of interferon & ribavirin almost 2 months ago. I was undetectable at end of treatment and am now waiting for the 3 month check.
I just wanted to say how much I enjoy reading about your work in the great outdoors, now with the added benefit of pictures. I work as a mental health nurse in a busy hospital in central London but have always had a love of nature/plants/wildlife. I try to escape London as often as possible although this was hard whilst on treatment, I am trying to make up for it now I have finished. I try to keep up with the various blogs that I read and they have certainly helped me to feel connected to other sufferers.
I must say that during treatment particularly the early stages I too would wake up drenched in sweat during the night with all the covers heaped over my wife.
Keep up the good work with the journal and the trees. Hope the treatment goes well.

Hi Andy,

Thanks for commenting and I'm glad you are enjoying the blog. I was starting to feel a bit guilty because some days I don't have a lot to say about Hep C and lots about almost anything else and this is supposed to be a Hep C journal. I love the outdoors as you can probably tell and I feel extremely lucky to work where I do.

I will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers as far as you staying virus free goes. Good job!!! The treatment for me was hellish but if I could have stayed NED it would have been all worth it and even though I swore I would never ever have anything to do with ribaviran again, I am now willing to try again if even for only the 3 months to try to get to the NED status again.

All the best,
Elizabeth Anne
