Michael got a super, repeat SUPER, good report last Wednesday! He is doing so good he does not have, repeat HAVE, to go back to doctor until APRIL of 2012!!!!
His viral load, which was at 1.3 MILLION in August is down to 62. Yep you got that right. 62. (Average for HIV patients is 48)
His CD4 counts that were down to 47 in August are 362 or 369!! (Average for HIV patients are 600-800)
His platelets are 82, up from 6 in September. YAY!!! (Average for people in general is 150-450) Thousand that is. This number is in thousands so it is up for 6,000 to 82,000.
So we had a blessed Christmas just with this news!!
Next the root canal did great. No pain. Wonderful piano music, warm blanket, roaring fire, red wine......ah it was so peaceful.
Well until Doc brought the jack hammers in and destroyed my image in my subconscious! Go back in a couple of weeks to get fitted for the crown.
Had the grands for about 3 days while I was off and it was super grand let me tell ya!
Then we all had Christmas at Layne's, including Dad and Mrs. Dad, and it was another super grand day! Even had all the kids and grandsons! Couldn't have asked for a better Christmas!!
Hope all of yours was grand too!
May the Good Lord bless and keep us throughout 2012!!
