Lab Results...............YAY!
« on: June 19, 2006, 11:15:34 AM »
Okay, many of you know about my recent lab fiasco's.  The case of the erroneous viral load, the month of pure hell and waiting.  Originally I was told I had a viral load of 93,000 after a year of being undetectable.  After being re-done, I am still UN detectable.

Well, I got my CD4's back......
242
My percentage went from 12 to 18 also.


This is my first time over 200 since my diagnosis a year ago.  Considering I started out at 21, I am pretty flippin happy!  More than that.......fucking happy..........

I love you baby.....
