It's not fun in my world

I had plans to write funny stuff this weekend but got a call from Michael that he was headed to hospital. So I jump in my car and head that way.

It was not good news.

HIV+ with complications. That was Sunday. Then at 3 am Monday, CAT scan.

Massive lung damage/disease. That was Monday.

Esophogas lesions on the entire length. That was Tuesday. Plus his T cell count was 34.

His T cell count today is 14.

I am sitting here in Medical ICU watching my boy sleep and try to breathe. Oh yeah, double pneumonia too. He had a broncho scope today to see how bad the airways and lungs really are.

Did I mention he is like 6-3? He weighed 117 on Saturday night. He has lost even more weight since then too. For some of these tests he cannot eat for 12 + hours before the tests. So far we have had 2 of those days.

It may take as long as 3-6 weeks to find out exactly what all he has. But they are going after all this real aggressively.

So I will prolly be on a hiatus for a while.

Love you guys! Keep us in your prayers. Email me and I will get back to you when I can. klaws256 at gmail dot com. if you want updates.
