Unusual blood test results...please help!

Hello,

I've had 2 hep. B tests, 9 months apart.  The first was less specific, but the second had usual results. The results were:
HBsAG: reactive
HBaAB: reactive  Quant: 108.41 MIU/ML  (>10 considered immumity by CDC).
HB core AB IGM: non-reactive (this was reactive on 1st test)
HBsAG w/ reflex: reactive
HBeAG: non-reactive
HBeAB: reactive

My questions are: Am I immune?  How can the HBsAB be so high and the HBsAG still show reactive?  

I have not been able to find this result/scenario anywhere on the net and I would appreciate any input.

Thanks to all!

Yzuvon
