Well, I go for my next round of medical followups next week...
« on: February 25, 2012, 02:55:46 PM »
I am doing that "serenity now" mantra in preparation for my follow up with the HIV specialist (my doctor I hugged last year).

I hope the lab results remain good as I move into my 27th year.

In the meantime, I'm gonna take in a movie this weekend and make a banana pudding afterwards.

 :D

Wow, banana pudding sounds wonderful.

Hope you get good news - and a hug - when you see your doc.

HUGS,

I could do with some banana pudding right now and looking out the window at a very grey London some bright sunshine also.

Hope your results leave you floating like a butterfly Tampa.

Well Pumpkins,

The results are in and:

FABULOUS!

Viral Load: Undetectable (after a "20" reading a little over 6 months ago)
CD4: 750
%: 30

All other labs are fine as well.

...Excuse me for a moment.  Tito, I need a tissue... OK, I'm composed now...

The doctor and I did not hug this time but just smiled at each other showing our big white "teefies" and shook hands.

Take care everyone!    ;D

Well, even without the hug, those are wonderful results!

I love good news. We never get enough of it.

HUGS,
