Day 3 – no diagnosis yet

We are patiently awaiting the test results. I did, however, call the Dr.’s office this morning. They said that the preliminary results have come back as possible. The antibodies results are not back yet. I also had a conversation with someone in Minnesota and they were surprised at how many ticks we encounter on any given day. I can walk to the mailbox and come in with one on me! She pulled up the Tick Risk Map while on the phone with me and my jaw nearly dropped when I located our area.

Rash: her rash is quickly disappearing. It doesn’t look nearly as red or inflamed as it did Monday morning. Her mood continues to be up and down. I don’t know if it is because she is irritable or if we make too much of a fuss out of guilt. In general though, she is in good spirits. Her appetite has come back. She’s had several bad dreams where she screams out in the middle of the night.

By the way, I just got a traffic ticket this morning that I have to fight. He said I turned left on a red light which, if you ever knew how paranoid I am going through intersections, you would know I would NEVER, EVER do that! So now I have to fight it out of shear integrity.
