Numbers In - The Only Way Is Up
« on: March 21, 2007, 01:58:06 PM »

This site has really been a source of great support on several issues I have had. I hope at last that I am gaining some sort of sanity although just one full night of peaceful sleep would be heaven..

Anyway, I have now had the the third result following my diagnosis and its ok - I think?..

Dec 06 - CD4 - 301 - VL - 47000
Jan 07 - CD4 - 450 VL 27,000
March 07 - CD4 - 607 - no VL as been in hospital 3 times already!

they also mentioned CD4% - 16% in Jan - 19% in March is this good/bad/or UGLY..

Now awaiting to see a specialist ref abcess in somewhere the sun DOES shine - we will see..

Thanks to everyone for their support - I am still anxious to get out to the country (in the UK) get my 2 chocolate brown labs and a cute b/f..Any one interested give me a shout ha..

Thanks all

607 is great for your cd4 count!! Congratulations!! Not sure about the percentage thing, still trying to understand that marker... did you mean in regards to VL that you are undetectable? (:

Congrats on your numbers! Good luck where the sun don't shine! Hopefully it will all get resolved with your new doc. Your percentage will hopefully get better but it is not horrible. Mine is at 14 percent right now but has been on the upward trend. 607 is nice for cd4s is great. I hope to get there in about 6 months, maybe sooner. Yes the support here is great. I am glad you are sharing your good news with all of us.
