Thanks again to all of you who have been praying for my friend. And Maria, thank you for inquiring into my friend's situation. The good news is that he has attended two doctors appointments thus far. Unfortunately, upon going to his second appointment he was informed he owed $172 for the services previously rendered. He paid it and now has less than $20 in his checking account. He has no savings account. During that second appointment the doctor ordered a whole host of labs. My friend went to the lab and found out that the labs costs nearly $2,000. Fortunately, he has medical coverage, but I reviewed his policy and well, he will be left with several hundred dollars in bills just from the second visit and the lab work, which he cannot afford whatsoever. A short-term solution has been found to have the medical bills paid, but long-term there are some issues. We were able to find him a case manager with the county in which he resides that deals with patients with HIV/AIDS. This person might be able to connect him to some government programs that will assist with the medical costs associated with treating the HIV. Unfortunately, his meeting with the case manager is not until next week and from my brief look at some of the criteria, I'm not sure if he meets eligibility requirements. My friend was/is very close to giving up, especially after the second appointment. He finally got the courage to go to the medical appointment and then was crushed (to say the least) when he realized he wouldn't be able to afford the necessary medical care. Also, his t-cell count is shockingly, dangerously low. The family situation has not changed either. Please continue to pray. Now more than ever. Thank you again.
