DingoBoi says hi and 55 CD4
« on: December 09, 2014, 08:24:08 PM »
My last test did not go so well.. as some might remember, I had what I suppossed was thrush... and it was.

My CD4 tested at 55 which is almost bubble boy status.

I'm up to 174 on my last test, so I'm going in the right direction.  Thank you all for encouraging me to get tested again and re-enrolled in the 'program'.

I have a counselor and adap and 100% waiver from the hospital for medical treatment.   

On the plus side, I am healthy and active... and just got a job at a 4 Diamond Casino as a front desk clerk.   

I just wanted to share that I'm doing okay and I'm thinking I"m gonna be fine with the meds.  It's only fair I gave you all an update on me.

As usual, I will not respond or further comment here unless reallly needed.  I was banned for a reason and that reason still applies.

OMG....Is this our Dingo?  I missed you and have asked about you since Montreal.  I remember puppy London.  Great to hear you are still amongst the living and doing well.  Hugs.

Good to hear from you! I remember well the black boa and all the rest of our memories from Montreal. And your friend who always turned her head to one side in pictures to show her good side. Cheers!

Wow, Dingo,

It is really good to hear from you. I am glad things are looking up.

I, too, have fond memories of you in Montreal.

HUGS,

Mark

Blast from the past...and yes, I remember the infamous Montreal "black boa."  While not germane, I also remember Robert in the strip bar in the Village...but that's another story....

Ahem. Did someone write 'boa' ?

Were we not dancing together in front of the universe on boa night?

That was enough to raise more than a CD4 count.
