I think AZT was the drug of choice at the time, as the HAART therapy was the highly-successful one which was also found to have serious side effects. I think she was worried about birth defects during pregnancy or losing the pregnancy, and also didn't want her daughter tested because of her test results which turned out to be positive, inconclusive, negative, and then positive again. But she DID have her son tested............. Why would she have one tested and not the other? I just confirmed that she did not test Eliza--at least there was no record of a test in her medical records. Do you think she had her tested privately? I read somewhere (but I can't find it now and I'm too tired) that she had her son tested multiple times (sounds fearless, no?) and said that he never tested positive. Why was she not as fearless with her daughter?
Are her husband and son still alive? I suppose so since there is no new news on this case.
Wrong. She had her son tested after Eliza Jane's death. Never before. She played the odds with both of her kids. She won with Charlie and lost big time with EJ.
