buddy, you kick ass
Sep 22, 2002

dear dr.bob,

this isn't really a question. as someone in the current phase of waiting for a test result (friday is d-day, the 13 weeker on a new ultra sensitive test they use here in ontario that apparently picks up all strains, types, permutations, including the kitchen sink), i have become quite a regular to the body site and its helpful forums..

i had my exposure in thailand in late june - classic ars symptoms (glands, muscle aches, diahrrea, etc.) - but tested neg on home access at 10 and 12 weeks.. was worried that home access is geared towards north american strains and not the type-e that i may have, so finally took the plunge on tuesday with a real blood test..

i just wanted to say - you are an incredible man.. your honesty, humor, compassion and joie de vive are truly an inspiration to all of us.. don't know how you do it - but i just wanted to give you a great big canadian thank you for the wonderful job you do!! you really are one of the great ones.

cheers, j

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello J,

Thanks for your kind comments and the "great big Canadian thank you!" I'll expect an even bigger Canadian WOO-HOO on Friday! Now it's time for you to kick HIV's ass out of your life for good!

Stay well.

Dr. Bob
