Say what?
« on: December 14, 2006, 01:28:20 PM »
I went to my OB today and she looked at my latest HIV labs and seemed very concerned. I am not good enough to decipher labs yet so all I saw was that anything over 75 was high. I did not know what numbers these were even supposed to be.
So when I got home I called the id clinic. The nurse called me back and told me that I should be very happy.
My last draw in Oct. my cd4 was 489 and my viral was 5,125. The draw on Nov. 28 shows my cd4 at 507 and my viral at 673! It was fantastic news for me. I was so worried that my labs had skyrocketed!

Hey, hey, hey!!  Those are good numbers there!  If that trend continues, you'll likely be in the undetectable club by your next draws!  Congrats!

Funny (not) how are minds work about fears.

And there you are having done very, very well. I would call that a super swell Season's Greeting.

Here's hoping for more of the same in the New Year!
