OK, the rest of the numbers came in.

Viral load is undetectable.

CD4 is still pretty good at 1,054.

Oh yeah, that percentage stuff, which I never have paid attention to, and neither do any of the doctors I know, came in at 38 percent, which, I guess, isn't too bad.

So, all in all, not a bad report card for a 25-year veteran of this battle. Guess I'm good to go until June.

Those numbers are great, Mark!

My doc doesn't look at percentages either, I am lucky to get my CD4 out of him.

All your hardwork is paying off.

Of all the things you wear, your expression is the most important

The heaviest thing you can carry is a grudge..

One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.

One thing you can't recycle is wasted time.
