Hubbys Results!!!!
« on: July 06, 2006, 06:08:33 PM »
Hubby got his results today. His first since starting meds.

CD4: 203  was 85

VL: 125    was 284,678

%: 18.0   was: didnt know

The dr said his testosterone was low and is prescribing a jell that he rubs in...dont remember what she said it was called.

Im just so excited....been doing a happy dance and singing the "so excited" verse from the song "Im so excited" by the Ponter Sisters.

I know he has a way to go but so happy that his numbers did what they were suppose to...at least his CD4s and his VL.   ;D

Hugs
Teresa

Teresa, and Hubby,

Life is truly good and fun.  Happy Dance all around.

In Love and Respect.
The Bible contains 6 admonishments to homosexuals,
and 362 to heterosexuals.
This doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals,
It's just that they need more supervision.

Theresa,

   That is great news!  Once the doc gets those testosterone levels back to normal I am sure both of you will really be happy dancing!

Congrats on the numbers.  I think the gel is called andro-gel.  If that's what he's taking, watch out for a rise in libido!  :o

Oh yeah, I forgot... got my numbers today too:

cd4 700
vl    undetectable
%   46 (big rise from last)

This is what you could  look forward to in a year of treatment.

Teresa:

Congratulations on the good news.  A comment about Androgel or Testim (the testosterone gel that he rubs on his body).  You are supposed to avoid contact with the site where he applies the testosterone gel.  Otherwise, your skin may also absorb the testosterone and you might end up getting unwanted facial hairs!
