    What am I looking at???

    We are just getting what seems like more real help. It started Aug 2008 with a high fever and head pain. ER found meningitis, then we went back the next day when he was head to toe bullís-eyes.

    6 weeks of oral meds and he was feeling a bit better.

    This is the test after this past week when I got him to go back to the doctor.

    Lyme western blot:
