Sandra WOW, you are fortunate to have a Doctor that would listen to your symptoms. Glad you are up and about.

I got my lab results back from the doctor and they were not good. My "titer" (not sure what it is but the doc said it is the test for Lyme) showed levels up from what they were before. He also said my liver enymes were not good and that my calcium was low. He said that he is not sure how it is all connected. I go back for more labs on Tues and will hopefully find out more. The movers took all of our stuff Thursday and we are leaving Friday. I am still tired and trying to get the house ready to pass inspection. Luckily dh is pretty much checked out so he is being a big help.

I won't get my lab results until we are at Ft. Polk, but the dr has told me to make an appt as soon as I arrive there so that I have it when my results arrive. He also said that Ft. Polk has one of the best army clinics and that all the med records now are computerized so the new doc will have all of my info and results.

Well, I will let you guys know how it goes. Not sure if they will put me on stronger antibiotics or if they will want me on iv meds. At least we will be closer to my mom so if they decide to put me in the hospital, she can come and help with the kiddos as dh will be leaving for predeployment training shortly after we arrive.

For those praying folks out there, keep us in your prayers please. This is gonna be one wild ride. Luckily I have a great bunch of kids and a helpful hubby.

Sandra; Sounds like you have your hands full. From what I remember of clearing quarters. The big thing was the stove / oven. I remember the inspector getting down with a flashlite looking inside for specs of brown in the oven. I would get doen there with steel wool and a razor blade and look for the specs before they came. the rest of the rooms were easy blinds and big wall spots and general cleaning. Ask at the preinspection what is expected and they always tell you what you need to realy worry about.

I hope the test show better for you, or at least they can get it nailed down so it can be treated better.

Mamaloya, our thoughts and prayers are with you. Make sure you take enough time to take care of yourself... I know you have your hands full, but you can't take care of anyone if you're not well. I do hope they get your treatment organized quickly and that it is very effective.

Sorry to hear of the health issues. Darned ticks, I'd squash 'em all if I had the chance!

Someone mentioned a spray-on repellent for the pets. What do you use? This might save my poor Scottie and the white Goldie lot of discomfort.

As a kid, we spent our summers in the mountains of NC. The ticks would drop out of the trees onto whomever was sitting under them. We simply got in the habit of checking ourselves everynight before going to bed. It's the tiny "baby" ticks that the PITA to find.
