Apparently his mother abandoned Peter and his 3 younger siblings and grandma was providing their care. She was absolutely devastated when informed of Peter's diagnosis. Germar, my nurse, did a nice job explaining to her about treatment options and reassuring her that all was not hopeless.
Peter will return this week for a CD4 and likely will start on medications for his HIV. His 3 younger siblings will also come in for HIV testing. Peter has something going for him that all HIC children do not, a loving and caring relative.
