Woohoo! First results since starting meds
« on: June 05, 2010, 02:47:37 PM »

It's been two months since I started meds and these are my numbers


CD4 Count is at 218!! Up from 157
Viral Load is <48

I am so happy to be above the 200 mark =) It means I can stop bactrim in three months and be able to spend the day out in the sun again without getting sick and I can go wildcrafting, and fishing, and hiking..

So happy for you sweetheart.  I'm due a set of numbers and am hoping to be above 200 CD4 myself, fingers crossed for this.  I gave the blood 2 weeks ago and my doctor's visit is in another 3 weeks.  I have no idea why they put the appointments so far apart.  Anyway fantastic job you're doing, kick some ass and take some names.

I made Chocolate Chip cookies and homemade Hot Cocoa to celebrate...my stove wore the hot cocoa.  :( at least half of it.     Turned my head for a second....just a second and boom hot cocoa foaming up everywhere. :(

cookies are yummy though.

I think my husbands called at least 50 people to tell them my numbers are above 200 he's almost as excited as me =).

Ravhyn that's such awesome news, and the numbers will only keep getting better.

If it weren't over 100 degrees here I'd have some hot cocoa too. ;)
