Thanks!  It has been a weird 2 weeks for me..  I can't say enough for all the encouraging words I have gotten in the past week here..  I have been a PM Queen of late (you know who you are).  Thanks for pulling me out of the weirdness I choose to call "Eric's space".  It's about the size of Lwood's popsickle.  It's time to renovate!

I do have a question..  What does it take to make those dang cd4's to go up!?!?!  I know I have been stressed a bit.  Can't I just eat a bunch of bananas or something to encourage these guys to come out and play?? ;D

That's a very good question. I can tell you why they go down, but not why they don't recover in the absence of highly active viral replication.

NB. Any advice about HIV is given in addition to your own medical advice and not intended to replace it. You should never make clinical decisions based on what anyone says on the internet but rather check with your ID doctor first. Discussions from the internet are just that - Discussions. They may give you food for thought, but they should not direct you to do anything but fuel discussion.

Congratulations Eric!!!  Decent count and a great %.  Things are looking really stable for you.  Maybe after the CD4s are stable for a while they will suddenly jump again.
