I have written about Victorine previously. One year ago she was knocking loudly on Death’s Door with HIV, recurrent Tuberculosis and a hemoglobin of 2.5. She amazingly recovered although her weight dropped to 66 pounds.
She comes in monthly for her HIV medications and I am in awe every time I see here. She has now gained 75 pounds since her discharge last year. I think Victorine enjoys the smile her presence puts on my face.
