|Mom, Melanie and Arnold|
Hilda is a young mother who recently was found to have HIV. I had given her my usual recommendation to bring her children in for testing. Hilda arrived today to begin her HIV medication and her her 6 year old twins in tow to be tested. I shook her hand telling her she was a good mom to bring them in. Her response was “I can not let my family crumble”. A universal response that most mothers have. To everyone’s delight Arnold and Melanie both tested negative.
