CD-4 lab work back
      04/25/06 10:58 PM

Well, we were feeling all rosy over here, but this morning we got David's Cd-4 count and it is 242. That's much lower than we had sort of psyched ourselves up for and the folks at the clinic are going to hook him up with meds as soon as they can file all the indigent patient paperwork.

It's really disappointing to hear he'll have to be on meds right away.

How bad is 242? And is it possible that he'll be able to get it up higher so that he can stop the meds for a while or is it a "once you're on them, you're on them forever" kind of deal?

We still don't have his viral load. Our fingers are crossed. He and I are going to the foodbank tomorrow where he can get 50 lbs of groceries per month. We are looking forward to that and to the support group for positive folks and their friends/families.

Still, it was a bummer to hear the news so far...
