Thanks for your reply, Finn. Lyme Disease has always been of interest to me as far as my son goes. When this roller coaster ride intially started, he was covered in mosquito bites and labeled with encephalitis. I have read numerous studies regarding the transmission of Lyme disease, and supposedly it is far more easily spread than we originally thought.
It was 6 months before my son was tested for Lyme, with a negative result, of course. I have tried repeatedly to find out why he wasn't tested initially at Vandy, but to no avail. I blame myself to an extent, but I spent the first month of this ordeal in total shock, and it just took me awhile to jump start my brain again.
I have an interesting report from the Allergy Research Group on Lyme and treatment if you want to pm me your email addy.
Have a great day!
