Just checkin in
« on: March 01, 2007, 12:57:07 AM »
Hi all,

It's me Cat.  I'm just checking in.  Haven't been here in about 6 months but just felt like checking in.  So far I'm still negative.  Andy.... you are so very smart!!!! 

The twins are starting kindergarten in September.  They are growing up so very fast.   They are so sweet and kind children.  I feel truly blessed to be their mother.

My husband is still on his meds and still testing undetectable while being on them.  He's had some issues where he has resorted to surgery to remove a continuously growing hump on the back.  He's had it removed several times but it just keeps growing back.  It troubles me.  We're not sure what to do and the doctors don't seem to know the cause except for him being hiv +.  He had surgery about 4 months ago and it's already growing back.  I've been obsessing over it and the continuous surgeries which is why I must be here tonight.

I've had some surgery myself.  Got a tumor removed that doctors diagnosed as a cyst.  Even mamagrams failed to detect it.  It was a little larger than a golf ball but I'm okay.  I joked with the doctor that while he was going to take it out I wouldn't mind if he decreased the size of my boobs.  He replied he wasn't that kind of doctor.  Oh well. 

I hope all of you are doing well.

Take care,

Hubby HIV+ since Oct. 2001
