The Lyme Disease Roller Coaster

So to update on Sarah…

Since March 14th- she keeps on! Keeps on getting up to go work even with intermittent headaches and dizziness. Keeps on taking the medications prescribed and keeps on hoping for relief. Any change seems positive.

Rounds of antibiotics are supposedly breaking up the embedded borrelia bacteria in her body. Toxins (cytokines) release and her system struggles to fight the inflammatory response. Sometimes terrible.

Weird reactions take place: body tremors that last for hours, headaches that come and go, sharp kidney pain, sleeplessness and the ever-present dizziness that brings nausea.

We’ve read mixed reviews on how long this will continue. Generally agreed upon is that treatments cause temporary worsening of symptoms. Words like change and fight and temporary hold hope.

Recently Sarah was able to eat all kinds of fruit she’s been mysteriously allergic to (lips/tongue swelling) since suddenly in 2015! Her double-vision cleared around the same 24 hours! Each relief is a gift from God and we gladly give Him all the Glory.

What a ride, what a crazy, crazy ride this has been. Thank you for all the prayers ❤️❤️❤️

We make the best of it 🙂
