UNDETECTABLE!!!

Today we are celebrating this wonderful news, though it took a whole year, we are so thankful to God for his blessing and healing in Luisa's life.  When we received her referral, we were told that she would not live to see her 5th birthday if she did not get the treatment that she needed.  Her viral load {amount of HIV in her blood} was at nearly one million, and her immune system was severely damaged.  Today, it is undetectable!!! {the test can detect down to 40, so her number is somewhere under 40.} This doesn't mean that she no longer has AIDS, unfortunately, that diagnosis will stay with her forever, it just means that the medication is doing it's job, her immune system is healed and most importantly, Luisa is ALIVE and active and LOVED oh so much!!!!

Psalm 139:14

 (NIV)
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
   your works are wonderful,
   I know that full well.

There's a big difference between HIV and AIDS. Did Luisa's HIV develop into AIDS at some point?

Yes, Luisa does have AIDS, some of her paperwork in Colombia stated AIDS some didn't so we noticed all of her papers from the Dr. here stated AIDS so we talked to her PID last month and confirmed that from her medical reports both here and from before,her HIV left untreated did cause her to develop AIDS.
