Update/ Holiday Greeting!/Photo
« on: December 24, 2006, 01:15:09 PM »
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY...  Hope everybody is having a great holiday...
I haven't been online lately.  Lots of things going on here...started new med's
a week ago...  My CD4 dropped to 200 and my VL jumped over a hundred thousand
so the doc says it time to go on med's again...I'll just have to risk contracting SJS again.

I just downloaded a bunch of Christmas music ....feeling the spirit today.  I've got company
coming tonight and tomorrow...  I always miss David during the holidays...more so it seems
since he loved Christmas so much.  I've seen his mother and exchanged gifts and his
Aunt is coming by tomorrow.

Chuck returned home yesterday after house sitting for mother while she was on a cruise...
It's nice to have him home but we're still having problems with him spending all his time
working on his computer/online business... I fell again and broke another rib...can't seem to
stay on my feet...but when I think back two years ago....I've got it pretty damn good so let
me stop bitching and move on.

I apologize for being out of touch lately....  Wishing everyone a

HAPPY HOLIDAY :-* :-* :-*

Happy Holidays to you too, David.

Hope the meds do the job again without complications.

As for your guy spending time online for his business, well relationships are great, relationships are a pain in the butt. You just gotta take the whole deal.

Have a happy day tomorrow. Wishing you the best for the New Year!

Yes, I AM Supporting You!

Hey David...

Merry Christmas to you just as well my friend. Great shot on the operation VL supression. In the long run it will be very beneficial to you. As for your ribs, take it easy as it does take time for ALL wounds to heal.

Enjoy your Holidays and with the ones you are spending it with! It is GOOD to hear from you.
