NVP Symptoms and Effects
I just wanted to tell Caroline, (a NVP counsellor) I spoke with for a few weeks over the hotline, that she did a wonderful service for me. I entered the hospital twice for IV during that time and felt she was a great source of strength and information. I am now 16 weeks and my good days are outweighing the bad ones slowly but surely. I had lost 12 lbs by the last hospital stay in March and now have almost gained half of it back. So far everything looks good and I have confidence I can handle anything now. Thank you so much for being there. Please continue the good work you are doing.
Thank you for your kind words.
