Not My Typical Post
Bottom line is... she will be fine!! While she is on Motrin she is walking around and feels much better. The swelling is still there and I am still worried. But really, she will be fine. Lyme's shows itself in many different forms. Lucy never developed the rash or flu like symptoms that is an indicator after a tic bite. It seemed to go right for her joints. She may have some of the joint pain for up to a year after treatment for Lyme's, but she will be good as new pretty soon.
Last night I was a wreck. The Dr's at the hospital were great..but I left not feeling like I knew all that was going on, plus Lucy was still NOT walking and in great pain. We went to another Dr. today and she made me feel better. And Lucy began feeling better too. I have more follow up appointments and I will keep you posted.
I have felt so guilty for not listening to my own self 5 months ago and then as we went along when those little situations came up. I knew something was not right about that tic. I just got "that" feeling. I am just so glad the God led us to figuring it out sooner rather that later.
She is tucked into bed right now feeling better. Thank you God!
