I got lab work done this week to see how the Week On/Week Off (Wax on, wax off?) treatment plan is going with my meds. The T Cell count dipped slightly, from about 440 to 370-ish, but the more important Cd4 percentage stayed the same at 23. Which is good.

Now I just wait until Monday for the main event: the viral load test results. When I got labs done, I’d been back on meds for one day after a Week Off cycle. So if there’s been any significant viral rebound, it should show up.

Of course, I’m not a doctor. Just a young positoid trying to figure out the best to live a long and happy life on HIV meds. I guess when you were supposed to be dead (according to doctors’ projections) by 1989, that doesn’t seem like such a far-fetched idea.
