Hey BillT -- you know that saying "no news is good news", so just happy to hear you are getting your quality of life back! That is fantastic.

I just posted on the Epclusa news; I was holding out a tiny bit of hope they would price it better, but I guess Big Pharma isn't going to change any time soon, unfortunately. Very glad to hear you are busy and doing well, FT
