It’s been quite a while since I wrote weekly blogs and, in the beginning, I blamed it on the fact that Gary and I were building a house, but then I got sick. It started as a debilitating pain in my hips, then spread throughout my body and now I’m struggling to do everything from putting on my socks, to walking.
After months of doing blood tests and x-rays, I tested positive for Lyme disease and not just once because they made me do the serology twice to make sure it wasn’t a false positive.
As you may know the outcome for living with Lyme disease isn’t good, but I’m one hell of a fighter and I’m not going to let this get me down. I start intravenous (IV) antibiotics tomorrow, Thursday April 11, 2019 and I will be tethered to a PICC line for 21 days. They’ve told me there are lots of nasty side effects, but and it’s always a big but with me, if you send lots of positive thoughts and prayers, I truly believe that with your help, I’ll be able to overcome the side effects, as well as beat this incapacitating disease.
Stay safe and stay strong. Thanks for following.
