Yesterday found Victorine coming in for her monthly followup visit. She is the lady with HIV and TB who had the hemoglobin of 2.5.
|Victorine 3 months ago to weak to get out of bed|
Her prognosis 3 months ago was grim. She has gained 30 pounds since her discharge 2 months ago and has now completed her 6 months of TB treatment.
She feels great and is planning on returning to Yoaunde next month to resume her work doing clothing design and running a retail business. She is a wonderful reminder that HIV treatment is working to extend people's lives and allowing them to be productive members of their community.
