Hey Rod,

I had thought you had seen an increase in your CD4, or was that my imagination?

They are going to try and get approval for another HISTO med to finish knocking out the HISTO. They are figuring once the HISTO becomes clear then my CD4 levels will increase.

R,

I hope this all works out for you. Wishing you the best, and hopefully you'll get those CD4's up, soon enough.

Rod, I hope things get better for you.  It seems like it's been a long road.  Hopefully you'll be able to get that new med, and your CD4's will go up (a lot).

I hope you knock the histo out. I think it sounds logical that, once you get rid of that issue, your CD4s may increase.

Hang in there. I'm send some energy your way, just cause.

HUGS,

Well like clock work I have to have my HISTO meds changed again, my new level was 38%. Can't win for loosing. Waiting on the doctor to call back with new meds and orders if the insurance will cover the costs of the meds.

Probably not the most sensitive point Rod, but with my life I THINK you will excuse it. Your dog has the most amazing facial expression.
take care RR
