Numbed by my numbers...in a good way...
« on: December 07, 2012, 08:02:54 PM »
Well pumpkins, I received my second round of bloodwork results this year earlier today.  And let me tell you, I am very pleased.

CD4 780/35%/Non-detectable.


The 35 percent is the highest I recall as I edge towards 30 years HIV positive.

AIC is 6.3 and Fasting Glucose reading was 101 (2 points above the top 99 range).

All of the other labs RDW, RBC, WBC, MCV, Baso, Lymphs, Calcium, Protein, Potasium, A/G ratio, etc. etc. etc. were within normal ranges with no flags.

I wonder if my recent stress reducing decision has something to do with this?  ( ;) to Ann)

So, I guess I can cancel that trip down the yellow brick road to see the Wizard.  ;D

Although, I will see my HIV specialist next week for a physical exam and to go over the bloodwork results.  :)

Everyone take care!

Great news Tampa!  Sounds like you are "perfectly normal" except for that little, "incidental issue" we all share in common.

And if you know the way to OZ, or have chosen to cancel your ticket, I'd take it off youi hands :)

Great news!  Congrats....I'm tripping down that yellow brick road along with you, my numbers continue to "shock and awe" me, at 25+ years....never dreamed my T cells would be 600-800 range...and virus undetectable....all other numbers looking great!

Let's hope we continue to do as well.

Best regards & hugs,

Alan  :-*

Major congrats Tampa.  Like Alan, I'm also on the Yellow Brick road as my last counts were 640 and still undetectable.  Figures.  We finally get some great numbers and the world is going to end in two days.   8)

Congrats to Joe and Alan on your good numbers as well!   :D

BTW, I hear that there is a sale on ruby red comfort slipons at Walmart.  Everyone can click the soft heels three times and get transported to anywhere we wish and come back after December 21st.

 :D ;D ;) :)
