My supposition is based on the request for donations to go to a hospice and/or aids project
. So, besides being very saddened by the the news of her death-- i am also very concerned.
Like I said, I have never experienced any symptoms, and neither have my three partners over the last years. I had surgery last year and had no anomalous numbers with blood tests. I know this is not an indicator in any way, however, from what i read, it would be likely that the white counts would be 'off'.
