We got some GREAT news a few days ago! Kendi's HIV viral load has gone from 106,000 to 300! Only 300 copies left of that nasty virus in her little body! We fully expect that in the next month or so she will be "undetectable." [That basically means that she will have 1-50 copies of the virus, which would result in a negative result on your every-day HIV test. The copies would be too few to be "detected." She will always be positive, but they have to use a more sensitive test to get a positive result.]
Other good news is that her liver enzymes are all coming back down to normal. No Hep B. No Hep C!
She's got a pretty low count on vitamin D, so we started supplements for that (when good 'ol fashioned sunshine didn't do the trick). Problem is, she can't stand the taste of the vitamins and has started vomiting them. The g-tube doesn't do a lot of good when she vomits vitamins (and the meds she took earlier)! URGH! Super Nurse Nancy and Amazing Dr. S are working to find a solution there. Hoping there is a liquid form vit D supplement she can take so we can just push it through the tube.
That's the low-down on Kendi. She's doing awesome. We are so blessed to be in a country where she can get such amazing care.
