New Numbers / New Milestone
« on: November 07, 2007, 11:30:33 AM »
It's been a while coming but I have finally topped 300 while VL remains undetectable.  About 18 months ago I was diagnosed with PCP and a CD4 of 45 so these numbers are great news for me.  Hopefully it is a trend that continues.  :o

Thanks for the well wishes all. It's been a slow trend back from the low digits after my initial diagnosis but damn, I'm tenacious.
