Whew - Good News
« on: October 17, 2013, 09:59:57 AM »
Being a bit new to the testing, I kind of went a little crazy after my VL last time came in at 22 copies after my first ever undetectable VL. But it went UD again, with a little increase in CD4+ and a major increase in percentage.

Leaving backwoods Maine next Friday to get my first tattoo, my first ink, next Saturday, in San Francisco... of course... then on to the Caribbean for "that cruise."

Life is good right now!

Great news Fisher!

So, what is the tattoo of choice and where's it going?

Hey Fisher -- Have a great time on your trips. Backwoods Maine just won't be the same without you, but I suspect neither will SF or the Caribbean after the rumored Fisher Moon rises.

56 going on 18. Better late than never!

In New Orleans I'll let you pick out the ink for that spot :-)

Sorry we didn't get the chance to know each other very well, but maybe we'll meet up somewhere, sometime. Right now, I'm kind of occupied and obsessed with a Cubby-Bear. Will let you know how that goes. . .

Heading down to the National Institutes of Health on Nov. 22. Don't know why. As I've started taking meds I can no longer be in the Long Term Nonprogressor studies there. Maybe a viral reservoir study. Off to San Francisco in the morning. Will remember to wear a flower in my fur.
