Family and Friends >> My Loved One Has HIV/AIDS


My Brother
      10/15/05 11:42 PM

I live in the UK and my brother who lives in Africa (been there since 1982) is in the final stages of AIDS. I visited him a few weeks ago and came home knowing I'll never see him again as he's not got long. Not producing red blood cells, CD4 count was 8 but gone back to 16 - still not good, CD3 count (lymphocites) only 82. My lovely brother is heterosexual and not a drug user (I must add that I've got many gay men as friends, so no predudice on my part). My lovely brother has worked all over Africa as his job was so specialised and not many guys there can do it.

Is there anyone else out there going thru the same thing? I'm devastated and know that my brother might not live thru the next week.

Yours Dee
