Marietta is a 2 year old with HIV who spent the last 2 weeks in the hospital with Marasmus, malnutrition. Marietta never got used to the white doctor poking at her and screamed bloody murder whenever I walked into the Peds Ward. She was started on HIV meds and mom returned today with Brenda, her 5 year old sister. Marietta immediately screamed at the sight of me and unfortunately Brenda tested positive for HIV.
Hopefully, Mom will stay motivated to bring the girls in for their monthly visits.
