Yay! I topped 100!
« on: July 04, 2007, 09:21:07 AM »
For the first time since my diagnosis last September, and after eight months into HAART (Kivexa & Kaletra), my CD4s have risen above 100! Yay!!! I'm sooo happy about it and hope I'll reach 200 by the end of the year. Percentage has come up as well and I'm feeling really good and strong. Furthermore, I had my testosterone level determined and it is one of a 17 y/o which might explain why my sex drive has considerably improved over last few months. I'm dating a cute (neg) bear since a couple of weeks, and for the first time in my life, next week we are going to visit a fitness club together... especially my belly needs some shaping up. ;)

Here's my recent lab work:

09-01-06   black friday diagnosis day
09-08-06   T4=1 (0,0 %)    VL >500,000
10-01-06   started meds (Kivexa/Epzicom & Kaletra)   
10-24-06   T4=12 (1,5 %)  VL=11,500
11-23-06   T4=18 (2,2 %)  VL= n.a.   
12-21-06   T4=41 (3,3 %)  VL=700
03-07-07   T4=70 (6,0 %)  VL <50
06-12-07   T4=119 (9,8 %)  VL <50

Thank you all for your lovely remarks, they mean a lot to me!  :D

Yes, we did celebrate. Big Bear took me to the cinema for POTC 3 which I hadn't seen yet. He booked one of those cuddly double seats at the back. We were not really concentrating much on the movie and rather behaved like teenagers lol. It's wonderful to have him around. He's a great kisser, too. We had our first date in the botanical garden of the local university, amongst flowers, trees and plants from all over the world, snuggling our way from the tropical greenhouses to the giant bamboo gardens. Ah well, I'm hopelessly romantic. And looking forward to my first visit to a gym next tuesday. It's never too late to start, that's what they said at the reception, winking at me... I'll see. ;D
