Hi AIDS2HIV,

Thank you kindly for your offer.

Yesterday W had his appointment 9-17-2013, with his physician. We will know his latest blood work by the end this week or early next week.
W is doing soooo good. He said he "continues to feel better and better". He is gaining weight.

His major complaint is still many foods taste terrible.

Hi is to continue his same 8-15-2013, antibiotic regiment, for the next six weeks. One of the cultures taken early on came back positive for MAC. He received medication to cover that virus she prescribed earlier. Another test drawn yesterday to see status of the MAC.
The only change will be switching the Sustiva and Truvada to one combined tablet instead two.

Current meds: 9-17-2013:

Sustiva 600mg.
Truvada
2 tabs PM.

Mepron susp.atovaquone 2 teaspoons daily 750mg
