Hello all you beautiful people! I have posted a few times in the past six months or so, and read a ton on this site, I wanted to say thank you to all of you who post, and who reply. My love is HIV+, six months ago his vl was >750000, his cd4 was 28. He had acyclovir resistant shingles, was begining to get ks like lesions (never diag), thrush, wasting syndrome, nausea, vomiting, constipation, severe lethargy, anxiety (panic) issues, then was diag with cmv retinitis, then it became systemic he went into acute renal (kidney) failure, had radiculopathy (nerve disfunction) couldn't walk became incontinent (couldn't pee or move his bowels under control), had a pneumothorax (collapsed lung) he is home again (thank you God) walking slowly, but walking!!, he is not incontinent, his renal function is normal, the cmv is no longer active and his vision while slightly less than before is still intact, the shingles are long gone, he is gaining weight, is rarely nauseous, he has no skin lesions of any kind, is no longer on any pain medications except ibuprofen, his last vl was <400 (gonna get a more specific test soon, and his cd4 270. all his other labs are also miraculously normal. I'm writing all of this to say thank you to everyone involved on this site because there were times i just didn't know what to do where to go what to say or think, and I'd just sit down, pull up this site and read until i could breath again because i felt like i has some support, some information. So Thank You so much, Thank God for this life, for more chances, for being able to wake up beside my love this morning. Our battle is not over yet, lots of recovery still, but the sun is definitely shining in our lives.
