Quick update: Red was at RITM earlier today and he had a good, productive day there. He was able to get all his tests done for free and he said he learned a lot from the counseling and training sessions. We finally found out that his CD4 level is 94, which sucks because it means that only does he have HIV but he technically has AIDS, but at least he is feeling good and isn’t sick. He was advised to start his ARVs already and to rest for a bit, so we’re planning for him to stay at home and not work until his CD4 level goes up. He wants to do online stuff which is great cuz at least he won’t be totally inactive. Now I’m just really hoping that he doesn’t experience really bad side effects. Honestly, Red has a very low threshold for pain and I’m worried that he’ll either forget or refuse to take his meds on time, which he can’t afford to do. Now I really can’t wait to get my confirmatory test results so I can do all the tests too.
