At this moment 3 of my 6 children have tested positive for Lyme's. Lucy the first fall we were here..very traumatic ! Jack this fall, another trauma. And now my little Molly! And poor Molly. I must pray my way through this guilt...she definitely is my child who feels sick, tired, hungry the most. Some of it is just Molly. She is just sweetness and softness so things bother her quicker and deeper.
And because of this I allowed her symptoms to go on MUCH longer than I should have...
I can imagine you thinking we are these REALLY dirty people who don't know when a tick is living among
us. But I promise you that is not the case. We do nightly checks...we bath all the time. The kids lived in the pool this summer and very little out in the woods. When?? Where??
When her knees were hurting and headaches were consistent I got that feeling...but I should have know sooner.
When Pete told me he had to leave for training for 10 weeks prior to our move. I thought...I can handle moving on my own...what's the big deal??
If it were happening in a vacuum it may be no big deal but daughters having Lyme's, babies puking at the Target checkout when you just finished struggling through the store for an hour, having 7 people to pack for, trying to patch and paint the 1 million nail holes I seemed to have made makes me really need my Pete at the end of the day. I should have known life was going to keep being life during this...
Molly is fine and Jack and Lucy are fine for that matter. I just hope that Lyme's does not cause further damage to them in the future. I hope I have done enough. I hope when the medicine runs out it is enough...Is it?
