New numbers
« on: September 06, 2011, 10:02:16 PM »
Thanks to Webview, I was able to see my latest lab results.  Seattle must have agreed with me instead of hindering my treatment.  More evidence that white wine spritzers work for me :o

Finally have enough cd4's that I can't name them all (488).  So close to that magical 500!  My doc worried about taking me off the Fluconazole until I hit that number, but I was pretty persuasive due to those terrible side affects.

My vl is low enough that I can give them nasty bitchy names.  There's only 20 of them.

% is 19.8 which is the best I've had to date.

Maybe a little nightcap celebration?

Absolutely! 

Further proof that AMG is not only good for the soul but good for the body as well.  I am happy for you and wish you continued good progress.

Finally have enough cd4's that I can't name them all (488). 

Oh come on... you could name at least one of them! 

I've always rather fancied the name Nebuchadnezzar myself   ;) 



But seriously, congratulations!

Not quite all the bars. I think we missed one in Tacoma.  ;D

Congrats Wolfie! I still think the lavender martinis had something to do with it.

I forgot about the lavender martinis.  AAH, that would have been the Chapel Bar.  A gay bar in a former church, just makes ones' eyes tear up with pride.  I drank lots of new things that week and should be ready again come summer.

Yeah....I hit the 500 mark!  535 CD4 and the % at 22.3 and a vl of 40.  That's practically a cure for my poor ass numbers over 20 years. 

Fasting blood sugar is 114.  That's slowly becoming a concern.....but doesn't trump my other great results. 

I love seeing my results before meeting with the doctor.  See him Thursday.
