On a happier note . . .
« on: November 27, 2012, 09:32:36 AM »
I received the rest of my labs today.

CD4 is 1,083

Viral load undetectable.

Oh, and the percentage thing is 39%

Not too shabby for an old fart with 27 years plus as a pozzie.

HUGS,

Mark

Hey Mitch,

They are down a bit, in the 600 range. They are supposed to be below 170, but I have never seen mine that low.

The aching seems to come and go.

HUGS,

Mark

Great news!

And don't call yourself an old fart!  I'm a year older than you and still cling to the idea I'm cute and humpy!

Wow Mark!  That is fantastic!  Great news for you.

The highest I have been was in the mid-800s CD4 (still non-detectable after over 10 years) and I am at 28 years positive.  I usually range in high 600s or low 700s.
